One-Act Touring Opera: 

OSJ artists will present a one-act, condensed version of an opera, performed in English by OSJ’s fully-costumed singers with live piano accompaniment. This live performance provides children with a positive experience of an art form that may be new to them, offering a fantastic introduction to opera and theatrical storytelling through music and voice. The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes and includes time for Q & A. Perfect for school assemblies, the one-act opera costs $500 for one performance or $850 for two, back-to-back performances and includes a study guide.

The one-act touring opera for the 2017-18 school year will be announced shortly.

To reserve your school’s performance, call Outreach Coordinator Lettie Smith at (408) 437-4464 or fill out an on-line booking form.
