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.

Opera Makes Sense is held at various locations throughout Santa Fe. Opera is explored through the senses and through poetry, songs, music, dance, costumes and art-making related to scenery and props.
