Sunday workshops

The Opera is happy to welcome your children for a performance!
The Opera is also open to the youngest! On Sunday afternoons, while parents and accompanying adults attend the performance, their children (aged 4 to 10) discover  opera in an amusing and playful way at the same time as the adults. Led by the Opera’s artistic and cultural education team, the workshops offer an opportunity for children to share an artistic experience with grown-ups.

Offer subject to the purchase of a performance ticket for the accompanying adult.
Registration and bookings required before the Thursday preceding the performance.
Space is limited; only 20 places available.
Flat rate: €10 for the children (from ages 4 through 10) for the length of the performance.
The workshops are held in the Bar Oriental. Participants should meet the Opera’s artistic and cultural education team in front of the cloakroom immediately after ticket control, 20 minutes before the start of the performance.
