Family Programs

More than 3,500 family members participate in our family programs on a yearly basis.  

Family Workshops 
Our interactive workshops precede family-friendly opera performances at the War Memorial Opera House or at family opera movie screenings. Participants of all ages engage in interactive activities like staging scenes and singing melodies! 

Opera in an Hour Movies for Families 
Our condensed “Opera in an Hour” versions of San Francisco Opera productions are created especially for use in the ARIA school programs and as family events. Current family movie titles include The Barber of Seville, The Magic Flute, The Elixir of Love, The Girl of the Golden West and Carmen. Free screenings occur throughout the Bay Area.
