Become a part of the opera story!

With Palm Beach Opera’s Story Time Series, young learners are whisked into the pages of some of opera’s greatest stories. Designed for children in PreK-5th grade, the Story Time Series will have children singing, acting, and following along with our Teaching Artists.

For in-person visits, a Palm Beach Opera Teaching Artist will lead a captivating in-person session complete with follow-up activities. In-person visits typically last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the group, story title, activities available, and other factors.

For virtual visits, a Palm Beach Opera Teaching Artist will work with you and your technical capabilities to deliver a live, virtual experience to your classroom or group. Virtual visits typically last between 20 and 45 minutes, depending on group size, story title, and other factors.

¡En noviembre de 2021, Story Time Series estará disponible en español! PBO Teaching Artists ofrecerá la experiencia completamente en español o en un modelo híbrido español / inglés según sus preferencias.

Advance reservation is required.
