Opéra Louisiane's Young People's Opera Program has been bringing free opera performances to students in the Greater Baton Rouge area for 14 years. Since COVID-19, anxiety disorders among children have doubled. Between their social isolation and lack of stimulation, children have really suffered, so the need for music in our schools continues to increase. Opéra Louisiane began taking opera performances into schools during the 2022-23 season reaching 3,000 students. In the 2023-24 season Opéra Louisiane will double the impact by going into 15 schools with their children's opera, Jack and the Beanstalk.
These programs are FREE for the schools and may be the first and only time these children are exposed to opera. If you'd like to help support this programming please consider a donation. Every dollar makes a large impact. DONTATE HERE TO SUPPORT A CHILD
