Family Day at the Opera House! Saturday, August 20, 2022 | 12 - 2 pm Thank you for bringing the whole family and coming to see what Sarasota Youth Opera is all about! The whole Opera House was ABUZZ with ACTIVITIES! From the Youth Opera singing, singing sessions, fun acting games, backstage tours, props, makeup, and beautiful costumes! For more information on our fall session, visit our website at https://www.sarasotaopera.org/education-outreach. View Photo Booth Gallery About Sarasota Youth Opera For over 35 years, Sarasota Youth Opera has given youth ages 8 to 18 the 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 have to go down into the Og’s subterranean world to bring them back! The fall program starts on August 16th, and open auditions for the lead roles will be held on August 23 and 25. 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!
