For Kids & Teens

Opera for All Ages

Music is for everyone! Until we’re able to once again host in-person classes, camps, sing-alongs, vocal training, and more, we’ve created online versions of select programs.

  • For the youngest singers (age 2–7), “Opera Time at the Opera Center” is an interactive storytime and sing-along.

  • Older students may enjoy “QuaranTEEN: Performances in Place,” a series of videos recorded by Teen Vocal Studio participants.

  • Everyone: Pages to color from past Seattle Opera productions ready to download and print. 
  • Coming soon: virtual activities from our spring and summer camp curricula.

Read together and sing together with Seattle Opera’s Opera Time! Normally held at the Opera Center, we’ve made sessions available by video every Saturday morning March 21 through May 2. Each installment includes sing-alongs, an interactive children’s book reading, and sometimes a simple at-home craft.

QuaranTEEN: Performances in Place

While we are all at home, members of our Teen Vocal Studio are sharing videos of how they are staying connected to music and art even when they’re not singing opera.

Seattle Opera’s Teen Vocal Studio is a unique training program for young Pacific Northwest singers who are considering a future in opera. These talented and hard-working teens receive training in musicianship, drama, auditions, and much more! Seattle Opera is proud to offer this program at no cost thanks to the support from our patrons and donors.
