Founded by Bay Area teaching artist and playwright Erin Bregman, Little Opera opened its doors in the fall of 2011. Inspired by her work as a Teaching Artist with the San Francisco Opera’s Education Department, Erin began the Little Opera after-school program with a desire to explode the assumption that opera is not for everyone.
Since its inception in 2011, Little Opera’s mission and vision has evolved. We are no longer San Francisco’s all-kids opera company. We are San Francisco’s opera company for everyone.
