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.

It’s Ambitious. 

You can’t make opera until you learn do everything:
Write.   Compose.   Act.   Sing.   Design.   Rehearse.   Perform.

What families are saying:

 

“From start to finish, this program is top notch.”
— Elena

“What I see as the greatest potential for this program is to help kids expand their view of themselves — to show our kids that they have it in them to do something really big, something they might not think they are capable of doing.”
— Hai Nhu

“If Gertrude had to spend the rest of her life behind bars or on a remote and hostile planet, she would be happy provided there was Little Opera at least twice a week. We would miss her, though.”
— Nathaniel

“If you look through the clouds of Little Opera, you actually see happiness, joy, and friendship.”
— Eleanor, 1st Grade
