We miss seeing all your smiling faces at the opera house on Saturday mornings.

Until we can return, we're sending the fun, crafts and crayons straight to you. Join us for a series of live, online art and music workshops. Then snuggle in with your little ones and watch a recorded opera performance written just for them.

Before watching the opera, little ones enjoy two hours of music, dance and art workshops online with LA Opera Teaching Artists. (We even mail you the supplies.) These specially-created workshops encourage children ages 4-8 to explore the elements of an opera: costumes, scenery, singing and more. Make Saturday Mornings at the Opera your family tradition. We’ve saved a spot just for you.
