Now in its fourth decade, the Student Matinee program brings thousands of middle and high school students from across Wisconsin to a Madison Opera performance. The 2023/24 Student Matinee is Tosca on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 in Overture Hall at 11 am.

Tosca lasts approx. 2 hours and 50 minutes, including two intermissions. It is sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.

Tickets are $5 for students and chaperones. The suggested ratio is at least one chaperone for every 20 students. Limited subsidies are available upon request and are calculated based on the school’s Free & Reduced Lunch Program participation. Tickets are non-refundable.

This production is appropriate for high school and middle school students only. Children under the age of 11 will not be admitted.
