Children can come and explore the world of opera with Florida Grand Opera through hands on activities, live performances, interactive experiences, and the thrill of live theater. Florida Grand Opera brings all the aspects of opera to life both in front of and behind the curtain. Activities include something for everyone: stage make up, special effects, set design, and of course singing! To make the experience a memorable one, live performances and roaming acapella singers highlight the day, concluding with the hilarious family friendly opera “Toy Shop.” Watch as toys come to life in this exciting and colorful opera and be sure to receive your special gift at the end!
