Kids Can Explore the Magic of Opera with Opera Starts with Oh!

 

You and your little ones are invited to what The Washington Post calls, “The best Zoom there is!

Opera Starts with Oh! is a virtual series of live, interactive lessons created by professional opera company Opera Lafayette to introduce young audiences to the magic of opera. Led by teaching artist and professional choreographer, Tamrin Goldberg, and joined by a new guest artist for every session, Opera Starts with Oh! is perfect for families with children in pre-K and up. 

Each month a different opera is explored.  Families can drop in for one or sign-up for every session in the series. And, in an effort to keep the programming inclusive, it’s a pay-what-you-can model!

After the virtual live sessions, participants gain access to Play On! Activities to do at-home and off the screen to keep everyone singing, dancing, and creating.
