Little LOON Tour 2021-22: Let’s Make an Opera!

Our brand new Little LOON production, Let’s Make an Opera, is a music-filled peek into the process of creating an opera. Written and directed by Bradley Greenwald and hosted by some of LOON’s youngest patrons, this pre-recorded 19-minute video is available for on-demand viewing through the end of the 2021-22 school year. Supporting teaching materials include sheet music, a word search, and a template for creating a costume mask.

This video requires a school fee of $100.

To access our Little LOON video productions and supporting teaching materials, please visit our ticketing page and select the productions you are interested in. Once you complete your ticket order, you will receive an email with a unique access code allowing you to watch the video production(s) whenever you want, and however many times you want, until June 10, 2022.

We can’t wait to bring real, live, professional opera to students in school gyms again – until then, do keep in touch, and we’ll “see” you soon via these Little LOON videos!

Little LOON and Friends 

The video we released last May, Little LOON and Friends, is available again this year for schools who did not participate last year (or would like to use it again!) This 18-minute video is overflowing with beautiful singing and heartfelt moments, with plenty of learning opportunities and silliness sprinkled in. Supplemental teaching materials for this video include sheet music for the singalongs, a word search, and a gorgeous seek and find created by scenic designer Ann Gumpper. Last year’s Little LOON and Friends video and supplemental teaching materials are free.

To access the video and supplemental teaching materials, add the Little LOON and Friends production to your ticket order. You will receive an email with an access code once you complete your order.

Thank you and Enjoy!
