The Playground Operas

Help us reach our 2018 goal of raising $33,000 for the Playground Opera program by making a donation today!

The Playground Operas program is a school day program that immerses students in the creation, production and performance of an opera. With the guidance of professionals working in the field today, students explore the operatic experience from the first moment of an opera's creation to the exciting culmination of its performance. The stage? Their own schoolyard playground.


This year's opera is Hansel & Gretel. Your contribution will support the fantastic work of our teaching artists, directors, designers, arrangers, and performers who have already dedicated so much time and energy to making our Playground Opera program a huge success.

Thank you for your support!
