CHILDREN'S OPERA THEATRE

To book a performance, please download and complete the form from the button above and email to sheran@fwopera.org

We travel statewide, and our flexible self-sufficient productions can be performed in almost any gym, cafeteria, auditorium, or stage.  Booking fees are based on a per-student fee, or a per-performance fee based on the number of students in attendance. There is no charge for teachers/support staff.

Are you far enough from Fort Worth that we’d have to stay overnight? Find a sister school (or two) that we could perform at on the same day or next day as yours and you can split the travel costs!  We have spent several days in the Panhandle and in San Antonio. Coordinate with a few other schools and you could save a lot of money.

Available booking dates:

Our dates for this Fall are September 16, 2019 – December 20, 2019 and for this Spring January 13, 2020 - March 25, 2020. Contact Sheran Keyton to book a performance at your school: sheran@fwopera.org or 817-288-1207.

Three little pigs. One big, bad wolf. Three exciting outcomes. Michael Ching’s delightful “remix” of the classic folktale about three friends who work together in the face of adversity. Remix One features an inspirational message of collaboration. Remix Two flips the story on its head and teaches students that structure and order are better than chaos. Remix Three advises students to “read smart,” “think smart,” share with others, and take care of one another when times get rough. Three Pigs Remix is the perfect introduction to opera and reading for children and their families.

Frida Kahlo 

and the Bravest Girl in the World

Target Audience: 2nd-6th Grade​

Marianna is a young girl living in Mexico City. One day her family encourages her to have her portrait painted by the great artist, Frida Kahlo. The young girl is terrified at the thought - Frida keeps skeletons in her house, and people say she is a witch! As it turns out, she is happy to make friends with Marianna, who also meets Frida’s parrot, dog, and monkey - all of whom can sing, of course - and her husband, the artist Diego Rivera. Based on the acclaimed children’s book by award-winning author and illustrator Laurence Anholt, this delightful family opera is about art, bravery, and friendship. The audience sings too, and plays an important part in the story!

Student to the Stage

Target Audience: 5th -12th Grade

Student to the Stage is an intimate one-on-one opportunity for students to engage in a three-step presentation. The students are treated to a live performance by the Fort Worth Opera artist of the day. They are given an opportunity to ask candid questions and have the singer to share their personal life experiences, and how they came from being a student just like the ones for whom they perform to a professional on the stage!
