Events For Families
Family Day Matinees
At least once a year, Seattle Opera designates a Sunday "Family Day" matinee. In 2013, we are doing it for both Cinderella on January 20th, and La Bohème on March 10th. At these specially designated performances, all students 18 and under in the company of an adult pay only $15 for most any seat. Family Days also feature special student-oriented activities.
Free Open Houses
Join us on January 5 and August 3 for fun and fabulous educational events at McCaw Hall filled with special family activities, music and more.

Other Programs For Families
In the Education department we take our operatic fun as seriously as we do opera. Our programs inspire creativity and foster lifelong learning. We're dedicated to providing a variety of entry points to the world of opera and facilitating meaningful exchange of ideas and stories. Most of all, we're committed to increasing people's enjoyment, understanding, and practice of opera and its many forms of art. Explore the wide variety of education programs for all ages here.
