SANTA BARBARA YOUTH OPERA:
Santa Barbara Youth Opera, now in its second year, provides young singers with tuition-free instruction and performance opportunities in a fun, rewarding and artistically challenging environment. Young singers will also enjoy unparalleled exposure to the workings of a professional opera company.
This year the Youth Opera celebrates the work of Benjamin Britten, with a performance of the composer’s Ceremony of Carols in December and an original children’s opera production of his one-act opera Noye’s Fludde in February.
Erin McKibben will direct the program in collaboration with Kostis Protopapas, Opera Santa Barbara’s Artistic Director and in conjunction with Andy Radford, Music Director of the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony.
