Let your OperAdventures begin!
“I liked your opera. The only time I don’t like opera is when my Grandma is doing it. She’s horrible.. But I think your opera is cool.” – Spencer, 10
“My favorite part was when Snow Drift was humming and singing, and the Mean Queen got really mad at her, it was so funny. I think Opera is really fun to watch, and a really good experience.” Ricky, 11
"Fantastic show! (Fight for the Future: Johnny Appleseed v. Paul Bunyan) Dazzling characters and starry eyed kids galore. Thank you for putting on the show, as family and going out for 'The Arts' don't always mix. But, as last year's presentation was a winner, this year's opera was excellent, high quality fun! Special thanks to the cast for being so kid friendly and approachable. To the producer/writer... we loved the message and went home feeling great about spending our morning with your carefully orchestrated script."
“I think it’s cool that you can learn life lessons from the opera, and it goes into song.” Lilly, 11
“The Inn of the Seven Dwarves was fantastic, especially the message of all students being accepting, of each other, and all of us; our students need to experience the arts, and all different types of music. It’s wonderful for them to have that kind of exposure. We love for our students to be a part of this production, and we really appreciate the young artists of Indianapolis Opera sharing it with us.”
"The kids like the silliness of the script, the costumes, all the action. We always have a chase scene. The teachers and adults get the adult jokes, references to current events and musical humor that might go over the kids’ heads.
