THE YOUTH OPERA PROJECT: ROBIN HOOD
Seattle Opera’s youth opera chorus and Seattle Public Theater creates a partnership that allows young artists to explore creative and vocational pathways in the performing arts with socially relevant material.
Seattle Opera and Seattle Public Theater are pleased to launch a new initiative: The Youth Opera Project! Students age 7–18 of all experience levels will explore stagecraft, singing, acting, dancing, and more, culminating with public performances of an opera.
Youth participants will work with professional teaching artists in a fun and safe space. We are committed to providing equitable access to the arts, so The Youth Opera Project accepts everyone ages 7–18, regardless of skill level or ability to pay. No prior experience is necessary.
Due to popular demand, The Youth Opera Project has opened an additional day of placement auditions onSaturday, September 9, for participants who were unable to join us for June auditions:
