Opera Storytellers Summer Camp

June 3-7 & June 17-21, 2024

Write, Compose, Sing, Act, Dance, Design,
Perform, Play

A collaboration between UNM Music Prep School and the Santa Fe Opera, Opera Storytellers is a week-long summer camp for children entering 3rd through 6th grades in the 2024-2025 school year.

Opera Storytellers is a safe, supportive, and FUN space for students to take creative risks while collaborating to develop and showcase an original 10-minute opera. No previous music or performance experience required.

Our experienced teaching artists are dedicated to making the creative process safe, engaging and transformative. We specialize in thoughtfully helping a diverse group of students each step out of their comfort zone to make new discoveries. The process is the point, and the resulting opera is the icing.
