In addition to our mainstage productions, the Opera is dedicated to offering diverse
and enriching programs throughout the Southwest.

 


Opera Makes Sense

Opera Makes Sense

A special program series created just for children (ages 3 to 5) to explore the world of opera's many art forms through a variety of activities and games. Special care is taken to address the different developmental levels of toddlers, allowing them to experience as much or as little as they like.

This year's sessions will focus around the general theme of Adventures, visiting different destinations like Spain (Carmen) and China (Le Rossignol). Several activities illustrate the selected topic as participants move from one station to another based upon their personal interest level. Opera's various art forms are introduced through poetry and song, music and dance, along with costumes and art activities related to scenery and props—all translated through the five senses.
