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 across the state. We also operate a day camp during the summer which educates children in the many aspects of theater by producing a play which we present at the end of the camp.
History: 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. Yearly we operate an outreach program which is available throughout the entire state. This program offers operas specifically designed to fit into the schedule of the schools 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 22,000 children annually.
Presently we are touring Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Gretel. For more information or to schedule a performance please contact our Outreach Performance Coordinator Lori Clay at (505) 450-4356 or OperaUScheduling@aol.com.
