Perform with the pros at your own school

Photo by Aaron LindbergStudents in grades 3-6 perform for their school alongside professional opera singers in the children’s opera, Mystery on the Docks. This kid-friendly opera tells the story of international opera star Edwina Bombastina, who is kidnapped by Big Al and his Gang of Rats. Edwina’s biggest fan, Ralph, has been captured, too! The thrilling, adventurous, and fun opera is complete with narration, live sound effects and commercials.

Teachers receive educational materials to prep students for their operatic debuts – including music, a staging guide, and student activity packet. The Lyric Opera Express troupe arrives the day of the performance with the sets, props, and costumes for the dress rehearsal and final performance.

Up to 28 students may perform in each performance of Mystery on the Docks. The program is $595 for one performance, and $895 for two performances. Mystery on the Docks is appropriate for children age 5+.
