LA Opera thinks you're never too young to enjoy the classics. With that in mind, we are proud to present two Saturday morning, hour-long, interactive performances. Delight in familiar arias and wander through enchanting tales of adventure in both original works and beloved favorites adapted for children. 

Fun and creative workshops for children before each performance add to the excitement and prepare the audience with art and music-making activities.
