Operation Opera

Let the Music Tell the Story!

Music can make stories come alive! We can sing alone or together, recite, chant or use instruments. Add staging, sets and costumes and you get OPERA! We’ll learn how composers set stories to music, visit the festival tent for a rehearsal, meet the singers, and learn how the orchestra “sets the scene”. Come and play a “part” in Operation Opera. Listen to wonderful music, sing, tell stories, and create your own instruments and masks!

July 13-17, for children ages 8-12. Includes visits to Mendocino Music Festival rehearsals and guest appearances by musicians.
