LITTLE OPERA

Location: On-site at West Portal School

Little Opera is an artistic mentorship program, and groups are always small, with a student/teacher ratio never larger than 6:1.
In this after-school program, students explore music, theater, and movement through creating their very own micro opera. As a group, students will work with professional artists to write, compose, stage, choreograph, rehearse, and perform an original micro-opera. No previous theater or music experience is necessary. Sliding Scale tuition and scholarships available
