Opera Unlimited



Opera Unlimited seeks to promote appreciation and understanding of music, especially opera, by introducing it to school-aged children throughout New Mexico. Upon request, we present professional opera performances to elementary schools and libraries across the state.

In 1990 a group of professional educators, musicians, and theatrical performers founded Opera Unlimited in the mutual concern that children were lacking more and more in an acquaintance with opera. Unique in our approach, Opera Unlimited is the only non-profit performance company dedicated to the children of the New Mexico.

Each year we operate an outreach program which is available throughout New Mexico. This program offers operas specifically designed to fit into the schedule of the schools and libraries we visit while remaining fun and exciting for the children with a question and answer period if time allows after the performance. Opera Unlimited has performed to over 50 schools and libraries, and 22,000 children annually. Presently we are touring Jack and the Beanstalk, Aesop's Fables, and Three Billy Goats Gruff.  For more information or to schedule a performance please contact our Outreach Performance Coordinator Warren Wilgus at (505) 219-1998 or operaunlimitednm@gmail.com.

For the past 19 years, Opera Unlimited has conducted a summer camp which educates children in the many aspects of theater by producing an operetta, presented at the end of the camp. In 2020 we will present Hans Krasa's Brundibar and Gilbert & Sullivan's Trial by Jury. For further information about the summer opera camp, please contact Cy Hoffman at (505) 822-0849 or choffman9@comcast.net.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the 2020 Opera Unlimited Summer Opera Camp is canceled. We delayed this decision as long as possible in the hope that somehow the situation would improve enough to allow us to hold some semblance of camp. It is now obvious that this is not going to happen. Sandia Presbyterian Church has decided to cancel ALL summer programs involving children with, hopefully, a fall reopening.

We are looking into some sort of virtual singing experience for the kids. Stay tuned for developments.
