Little Opera’s mission is to build a vibrant creative community — through the creation and performance of original opera — that transcends divides and transforms the lives of children, families and artists.



Reigstration is now open for

Little Opera 2016-2017

Now open to Grades k-8

In our after-school program, students work with professional artists all year to write, compose, design, cast, stage, choreograph, rehearse, and perform original opera. Over the course of Little Opera’s first five seasons, students collaborated with over 100 adult artists from every discipline.

Because we run Little Opera as an artistic mentorship program, our groups are always small, with a student/teacher ratio never larger than 6:1.

“Working with Little Opera has been hands-down one of the most inspirational, educational, and awesome experiences in my life as a musician. This group is without a doubt my favorite organization in the Bay Area, and I cannot wait to see how these immensely talented kids and adults develop as artists in the coming years. I CAN’T WAIT for next season!!!” –Danny Clay, Little Opera resident composer
