Rock Odyssey, the rock ‘n roll musical treat that delighted tens of thousands of Miami-Dade school children at the Adrienne Arsht Center earlier this year, returns this fall to bring the magic of live theater to a new class of 5th graders! 

Dozens of would-be gods and heroes auditioned for the chance to perform on the Knight Concert Hall stage when a new production of Rock Odyssey, the Broadway-style musical based on Homer’s Odyssey, returns this September.

A program of the Adrienne Arsht Center’s Learning Through the Arts initiative and a partnership with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Rock Odyssey offers 26,000 fifth grade students each school year the opportunity to see a live performance in a world-class performing arts center completely free of charge to students and to schools. The experience extends beyond the theater and into the classroom through an in-class curriculum package, created in partnership with World Book, that is provided to all teachers in the school system, also free of charge.
