THE LA OPERA RETURNS!

The Magic Dream
An Adaptation of Mozart's Magic Flute

The LA Opera will return to San Pedro's Warner Grand Theatre on Thursday, February 7, 2013 with their youth-tailored performance of Mozart's Magic Flute called The Magic Dream.  This year, we have invited 1250 Harbor Area students in grades 3 to 6 to this exciting and colorful introduction to opera.

This year we look forward to another successful and exciting event with more students coming from even more participating schools.
