The “Opera Look-in” is a one-hour introduction to the artistry and spectacle of opera designed especially for families and kids (ages 6-12).
When four inquisitive children unexpectedly end up lost in an opera house, they see the magic of theater and stage craft come to life. Join them as they learn about the orchestra, lighting, staging, and more from some of opera’s most famous characters like Figaro and Madama Butterfly. Featuring members of the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program, the WNO Orchestra, and conductor Steve Gathman performing excerpts from The Magic Flute, Lucia di Lammermoor, Madama Butterfly, and more, this all-new, one-hour production is the perfect introduction to opera for children ages 6-12 and their families.
Youth Tickets: $10 and $15 Adult Tickets: $15 - $35
The Opera Look-in is an integral part of making opera accessible to everyone in the community and this is a perfect event to introduce the fascinating art form to members of the community who have never stepped foot inside an opera house.
