About Opera Lafayette:Opera Starts with Oh Logo with red

Opera Lafayette, an American period instrument company, brings to modern audiences fresh interpretations of rediscovered gems and historical masterpieces from the 17th through 19th centuries, illuminating the contemporary relevance of the works together with their original appeal. Central to the company’s mission is building a legacy of the timeless repertoire Opera Lafayette brings back to life. This is achieved through an extensive discography, mounting revivals, and inspiring a public appreciation for this repertoire through its audience engagement programs for audiences of all ages.

This family programming is Opera Lafayette’s newest Community Engagement initiative. These family-friendly open houses and workshops not only help strengthen an appreciation for opera as an art form but utilize opera to connect families through the arts. This community engagement program works to introduce youth to the original Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of opera) and features activities which connect children and adults to many of the arts and humanities: music making, storytelling, culture and language, visual arts and design, and dance. The program is designed to engage with different types of learners: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, and Tactile.
