Our flagship education program, Children’s Performance is a behind-the-scenes, storytelling adventure for children, families, and caregivers to experience the magic of opera! Each season, Children’s Performance presents a 60-minute abridged and family-friendly version of an iconic opera—complete with beautiful costumes, lively narration, and a full orchestra—performed by Palm Beach Opera’s Benenson Young Artists and Bailey Apprentice Artists. Experience interactive Education Stations before the performance and enjoy cast meet-and-greets after the show!
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:
