Opera Quest Northwest is a nonprofit group dedicated to bringing the world of opera to school-age children.
The mission of Opera Quest Northwest is "to educate, enrich and instill a love of music in the children of our region by introducing them to opera through a lively production that blends classic opera excerpts with a humorous, interactive script."
Children learn opera history, characters, voice parts, and famous melodies. They get to try out opera gestures and singing styles, become part of the chorus, and even come onstage as opera characters.
In bringing opera into our schools, we plant the seeds for a lifelong appreciated of - and support for - the performing arts that will benefit current and future generations.
