Children’s Performance, our flagship education program, brings together children, families and caregivers from throughout the community to experience the magic of opera!
In 2017, Children’s Performance will feature a 60-minute abridged version of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance performed by Palm Beach Opera’s Benenson Young Artists. Sung in English with supertitles projected above the stage, this comic delight will be made complete with beautiful costumes, lively narration, full orchestra…and a pirate ship!
Experience Education Stations, a behind-the-curtain look at opera, and cast meet-and-greets.
Palm Beach Opera’s Children’s Performance is a sensory friendly integrated performance.
Audience members with sensory sensitivities are offered seating convenient to aisles and exits and access to a Break Space that can be used at any point during your trip to the opera. Inside the theater, lights will be dimmed and the singing will be unamplified, but the opera may include amplified narration. A timeline of events is provided which outlines the narration points, scene changes, and other potential sensory triggers.
Palm Beach Opera is happy to provide preparatory materials including Parent/Chaperone Information, a pre-visit book “My Trip to the Opera: I Am Going To See The Pirates of Penzance,” an event map, and a pre-visit video. Email Dr. Jourdan Laine Howell for more information.
