Free Noontime Concerts

Each season, Opera Santa Barbara offers a series of free Noontime Concerts along the central coast featuring members of our Chrisman Studio Artist Program. These concerts are curated around our upcoming mainstage productions and feature a variety of music for everyone to enjoy.

Santa Barbara Youth Opera

Santa Barbara Youth Opera provides young performers with high-level instruction and performance opportunities in a fun, rewarding and artistically challenging environment. SBYO members have sung in our mainstage productions, performed in our summer youth opera camp, and can now participate in new online programs.

The Opera Lab

The Opera Lab is an innovative highly interactive program designed to teach your students the A-B-and high Cs of opera! Guided by our four Chrisman Studio Artists specially trained in improvisation, your students will learn the building blocks of this fascinating art form and use them to construct their very own opera, performed for them on the spot.
