Opera Makes Sense

Opera Makes Sense and its digital counterpart, Stories that Sing!, are programs created for children ages 3 to 5. Both programs explore the world of opera through a variety of activities and games.

Opera Makes Sense is held at various locations throughout Santa Fe. Participants move from one station to another based on their personal interest level. Opera is translated through the senses and through poetry, songs, music, dance, costumes and art activities related to scenery and props. This program is on hold due to restrictions of in-person gatherings at this time.

Until we can meet again in person, grab your kids and your coffee and tune in to Stories that Sing! on our YouTube channel at 10 am MT each Saturday throughout the month of May to enjoy some music, art and poetry.
