Over the years, the Los Angeles Opera has provided students, opera lovers, and general audiences the opportunity to learn about and enjoy opera performances. Through their community programs, the opera company shares the joy of the art with people of all ages. The company also reaches out to low-income seniors and school children by opening dress rehearsal performances to these groups for free. Some of the most talented opera professionals in the industry have worked with the Los Angeles Opera and many new and up and coming artists perform regularly in productions. The program is a great experience for young artists, as well as an honored opportunity for distinguished opera veterans. The Los Angeles Opera was created and overseen by one of the most well-known opera performers in history, Placido Domingo. The opera has made every attempt to maintain the original vision of Domingo through the Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program, a two to three year paid opera residency for artists. Students receive individualized training courses, musical coaching, language studies, voice lessons, dance, and acting instruction. The opera company also strives to bring opera into the community through its public education courses. Opera 101 is designed for teachers who want to learn more about opera in order to share the art with their students. In-school Opera for Elementary Schools brings performances into schools so young students can learn to appreciate opera early. There are also opera classes offered for secondary school students, as well as the general public.
