You and your little ones can discover the magic of opera together.

Introduce your family to the magic of opera. From a bed of pillows, children enjoy an interactive, family-friendly opera under the glittering chandeliers of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. At only $18 a ticket, the whole family will make lasting memories and have an unforgettable experience.

Before the show, little ones get their wiggles out with a full hour of music, dance and art workshops. They will create special souvenirs to remember their first (or second, or third) time at the opera. Make Saturday Mornings at the Opera your family tradition. We’ve saved a seat (or a pillow) just for you.

The Marriage of Figueroa
January 25, 2020
February 8, 2020  
The clever residents of the fictional Aguas Frescas Mission need to convince their selfish governor to change his ways. A few sneaky tricks, a disguise or two and a special performance of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro are just the thing to (melodiously) show the governor that stealing doesn’t pay.

Sung (and spoken) in English, LA Opera brings Mozart's operas to life. Featuring a mash-up of Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, and The Magic Flute, little ones are transported into fanciful worlds of timeless tales and fun.
