Little Opera of the North

COVID-Friendly programming in the works. Stay Tuned!

About

Little Opera of the North is a program from Lyric Opera of the North that brings professional opera to elementary school students throughout Northern Minnesota.

Four professional singers, one pianist, a set, costumes and props arrive at the school, set up, and rehearse with their opera chorus — 16 students from the school! Then the LOON cast and their student chorus perform for the rest of the school, along with invited guests.

2020 – 2021 Season

While Schools adjust to new safety protocols, Little LOON is working on new ways to bring opera to our youngest patrons. Plans are underway for a virtual Little LOON program! 

The virtual Little LOON program will feature four singers and a pianist, plenty of singing, and opportunities for student participation – in a 20 minute video format. The cost to schools for this virtual program will be only $50 thanks to generous support from Little LOON sponsors. We look forward to working out the final logistical details of this program once we hear back from interested participants, and anticipate having the final video ready by mid March.
