OPERAtion KIDS is a unique education and outreach program of the Canadian Children’s Opera Company. It began in 2008 with the help of the Metcalf Foundation as an after-school program in the west-end of Toronto. It has since expanded to incorporate in-school programs across Toronto offering teachers music, and drama workshops during class time.
OPERAtion KIDS introduces participants to the magical world of opera. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience, knowledge, or ability. Each workshop includes an introduction to acting, singing, prop-making, costumes, writing scripts, creating sets, and stage management. The program is made possible by BMO Financial Group.
