Opera for the Young

Opera For the Young

Opera for the Young (OFTY) is a preeminent producer and presenter of opera for children in the United States, and since 1970 we have introduced more than 2.5 million children to opera. OFTY is unique - children's opera is our sole focus. In the coming season, our original opera, Super Storm, will be an introduction to opera for over 70,000 children.

Opera for the Young® brings live, professional opera to elementary school audiences with annual Fall and Spring tours. Students appear onstage in chorus and cameo roles, performing for their peers right alongside OFTY's professional artists. All productions are fully staged, sung in English and adapted especially for kids.

Opera for the Young® keeps school performances affordable through its own fundraising efforts. We are able to offer our programming at 40% of the actual cost through the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations and government funding.

Opera for the Young also rents our productions to companies around the nation. Companies interested in our children's opera rentals can CLICK HERE!

It's not often you see a safety taken in the top three, but I think the Bears pluck the tone setter out of Baton Rouge if the first two picks fall this way. Adams, whose father, George, played for the Giants in the 1980s, is a punishing hitter who roams the middle. Tom Bowen's five plus years mickey mouse silhouette as Memphis' athletic director have been marked by record fundraising, the Tigers' football rise under Justin Fuente and basketball turmoil that led to Josh Pastner's departure to Georgia Tech and Tubby Smith's arrival from Texas Tech. A California native and Notre Dame graduate, Bowen went to Memphis after eight years as San Jose State's AD. He inherited a rookie head coach in Fuente, and when Fuente went to Virginia Tech after winning 19 games combined in 2014 and '15, Bowen hired Arizona State offensive coordinator Mike Norvell. The Tigers went 8 5 last season. Bowen and Memphis welcomed Pastner's 2016 move to Georgia Tech after the Tigers went consecutive seasons without making the NCAA tournament. They weren't much cheap nfl jerseys better under Smith last season. In the year that Luke Hodge and Sam Mitchell joined Hawthorn, it was impossible for a player to be openly homosexual. Most players were still vocally homophobic, or at least used homophobic language as a crude and masculine form of bonding, naked together in the showers. Now the AFL has a pride round, and the US, always leading these cheap nhl jerseys things, has had its first gay NFL draftee. The statement continued, "I am outraged and cheap china jerseys upset by the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile along with so many others. I am also outraged and saddened by the attacks in Dallas and the deaths of the 5 honorable cheap mlb jerseys police officers (Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson, and Patrick Zamarripa) who were providing protection while trying to keep peace. We have to be better as a society, it's not about color, it's about what's right and wrong. I was very wrong in posting that image. Every single life matters, every death as a result of violence should be treated with equal outrage and penalty." AJ, I like a good NFL game on TV as cheap china jerseys much as anyone else but many of us are guilty of overdoing it. Especially when it is so important to start our plan B. Goodbye pensions, cheap hockey jerseys hello new economy. Connecticut teachers should start now to avoid the pension crisis and so should everyone else for that matter. The personal seat license is a one time fee that will give ownership rights to the seat through the end of the stadium lease. In the Falcons case, the PSL will provide ownership for 30 years, plus three five year renewal options. PSLs are a common form of financing for building new stadiums, but have never been used by an Atlanta pro sports franchise before.
