Opera Blasts

 

 

A program to complement Opera to Go! performances for children in Pre-K – Grade 1

An Opera to Go! performance may be combined with Opera Blasts, which adapts music from the operatic repertoire for younger students. Opera Blasts is performed by Opera to Go! artists, who make famous opera relevant to the next generation of operagoers through engaging storytelling. Singers can visit up to five classrooms, providing a personal, interactive way for young children to learn about opera.
