Sarasota Youth Opera Hosts Family Day at the Opera

Arts & Culture

On Saturday, August 20, from 12 to 2 pm, bring the whole family and come see what Sarasota Youth Opera is all about! The whole Opera House will be abuzz with activities. Hear the Youth Opera sing, attend a “Find Your Own Opera Voice” singing session, join in fun acting games, and take a tour of the opera house. You can even get creative and make some props, have fun at the makeup table, explore the beautiful costumes, and more. This event is free to all. For over 35 years, Sarasota Youth Opera has given youth ages 8 to 18 an opportunity to experience opera firsthand through our performance-based program. This fall, our youth performers will present Dean Burry's The Secret World of OG, complete with professional sets, costumes and orchestra on the Sarasota Opera House stage. The opera tells the charming story of the OGs, green, elfin creatures who live under the children’s playhouse. The OGs have a habit of stealing any toys they want, but when they steal the children’s little brother and their dog, the children must go down into the OG’s subterranean world to bring them back! The fall program starts up on August 16th, and auditions for the lead roles will be held on August 23 and 24. No prior experience is necessary, all skill levels are welcome, and all those who enroll this fall will take part in The Secret World of OG!

Sarasota Opera House: 61 N. Pineapple Avenue, Sarasota.
