Precious Monster Operas
A New Opera Cycle for Young People

Libretto by Ariel Zetina
Score by Mike O'Mara

The Precious Monster Operas follow a child through a journey to find a missing monster. These three short operas depict the transformation of the everyday into the fantastic, as the child navigates trap-doors, oceans, and the discovery of heartbreak.

Precious Monster Operas - Workshop Reading

September 5, 2014 at 7pm
September 6, 2014 at 3pm

A child has lost their Precious Monster. Join us as we travel through holes in the ceilings and over the purple sea as we search in this interactive opera for young audiences.

Recommended ages 3-6.

This workshop was an integral part of a development process for the opera as we received feedback from our target audience, kids! 

Thank you to etc. Music School for hosting.
