Date night is for grown-ups, but Family Days are for kids. So pack them up and meet us at the opera; we’ll save a cookie for you.

At LA Opera, we love seeing families attending opera together. For our Family Days, we pick performances from the most family-friendly operas we have in each season, and plan lots of fun activities for the day: meeting the cast, cookie decorating, games, things like that. Kids love going to the opera!

2021/22 Season Family Days:


  • Sunday, November 28 and Sunday, December 12
    These Sunday Matinee performances include a special intermission reception on the plaza for children with hot cocoa, photo booth and decorate-your-own-crown activity. Call the box office for tickets including half-price tickets for kids.

Activity: Learn more about Cinderella (La Cenerentola)  by exploring the pictures below. Don't forget to look for hidden sounds!

Half-price tickets for children and teens
Anytime you want to bring a child to the opera, it’s half-price. But since little tots and long operas aren’t fun for anyone, we limit the ages for attending our mainstage productions to nine and up. (Half-price tickets are available for kids up to 17 years old.) Half-price tickets are only available by phone. Order by calling the box office at 213.972.8001, Monday- Friday 10am - 6pm.
