Designated Festival matinee performances are perfect for those on a budget. Full-length operas are performed by the talented young artists of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Training Program. Introductions before each act and a meet-the-artists session after the opera make this the perfect opportunity to introduce children and opera newbies to the magic of opera. Add-on the Take a Child to the Opera program for additional pre-show activities on the same day. [Details]
