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.

We’ve saved a seat (or a pillow) just for you.

2020/21 Season productions:

The Prospector
February 6, 2021  
Transport your little ones to the rugged American West where a colorful cast of characters meet in a mining camp during the 1850’s California Gold Rush. Here in this wild and untamed country, a prospector charms a group of coyotes with a story of cowboys and miners competing for the love of a strong and beautiful woman. The Prospector is our celebration of Puccini's The Girl of the Golden West, written by Lee Holdridge and Richard Sparks (and Puccini, of course).

Puccini Opera Tales

Sung (and spoken) in English, LA Opera brings Puccini's operas to life. Featuring a mash-up of Gianni Schicchi, The Girl of the Golden West, and Turandot, little ones are transported into fanciful worlds of timeless tales and fun.
