Opera Explorers

An adventure awaits for families with young children ages 4-6!  

This program is specifically geared toward guardians with young children ages 4-6 who want to actively participate in an arts program as a family. Opera Explorers will utilize the various elements of opera (composition, libretto, design, movement, etc.) to explore scenes from various operas.  

The program will be presented on Saturdays, April 15th - May 6th in the Guild’s Opera Learning Center, located in the Samuel B. and David Rose Building, on the Lincoln Center campus. The program will be facilitated by Soprano and Guild Teaching Artist, Amanda Ekery. Registration for this program will open February 1st.

To help promote a creative environment that fosters guardian-child bonding, Opera Explorers participation will be capped at 40 participants. Participants will be asked to attend all four sessions. Attending caregivers should be willing to fully participate in all activities with their child(ren) - including singing, dancing, arts and crafts. The participation fees for the entire four-week workshop will be $100 for one child and guardian, and $25 for each additional child (they must also be in the 4-6 age range).  

All participants 5 and older must be fully vaccinated. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you have received a second dose in a two-dose vaccine series or two weeks after you have received a single-dose vaccine. Participants must provide in-person verification of vaccination. All audiences will be asked to sign a Covid-19 waiver when purchasing tickets. At this time face masks will be required within the Rose Building and the Opera Learning Center. Should this policy change, we will notify audience members prior to the event.

This program is being produced with financial support from the Laura B. Vogler Foundation and The Lee Thaw Charitable Trust.
