It’s Saturday morning and the kids are ready to run, play, sing, dance – sounds like it’s time to head to the opera. Wait, what? Turns out opera is more than just sitting and listening. Get ready for an unforgettable morning full of music, games, crafts, and dancing followed by a special opera written just for kids. (Don’t worry, we throw in some jokes for their grown-ups too.) Check out what people are saying about this magical program below:
The opera is fun for kids and clever enough to make parents laugh out loud (told you we had jokes). Aubrey Trujillo-Scarr, a soprano appearing in The Marriage of Figueroa, says, “You get to hear great young singers who are always game for a laugh and passionate about sharing opera with everyone!”
You might inspire the next great music star. Opera League volunteer Alma Guzman says “Some kids have a hidden talent which gets awakened when they get exposed to opera. They learn to appreciate music in general. That is instrumental, orchestra, voices and acting. They may find their talents. Music was in my life since childhood, and I cannot imagine living without it.”
