COVID-19 update: While we encourage mask wearing for an Opera to Go! show, audiences may be mask optional. Performers will remain masked until further notice.
Opera to Go! is a fully-staged, high-energy, 45-minute opera, sung entirely in English and designed with students in mind. Opera to Go! is performed across countless schools and community venues all over the greater Houston region as well as to further regions in the great State of Texas.
