"Opera is not just magnificent music, dance and theater with astounding sets on a beautiful stage; opera can sweep you away to foreign lands, take you back in time, dazzle you with pageantry and bring history to life. It is literature, social studies, cultural diversity, multiple languages and most of all, it is exciting!" - from LA Opera

Meet the Music is thrilled to be entering our fifth year in partnership with the LA Opera! Each year, we invite 1500 4th and 5th graders and their teachers to the historic Warner Grand Theatre for a free, youth-tailored demonstration performance of a famous opera. Prior to the performance, community educators visit schools, providing an engaging introduction to opera and in-depth educational materials, helping students and teachers make the most of their visit.
