TDO Family Performances

To keep the fun going beyond the summer, TDO will present a variety of Family Performances throughout the 2012–2013 Season. Opera comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to give even the youngest opera fan a chance to experience opera in three different ways. All Family Performances are at the Winspear Opera House and include interactive activities in the lobby and in Sammons Park either before or after the performance.

TDOpage2stage™ explores the world of Jack and the Beanstalk through a fully staged opera production and interactive TDO Kid’s Book Club before the performance.

TDO’s Family Concert features the TDO Orchestra and rising young opera stars. The concert will include selections from Mozart, Bizet, Puccini and Jake Heggie. Come early for fun crafts and activities!
