The Magic of Opera for the Whole Family!

From newly created operas for young audiences to a day of behind-the-scenes exploration of the Lyric Opera House, Lyric Unlimited offers gateways to storytelling for the whole family to enjoy.  

Earth to Kenzie: An Opera for Young Audiences

How far can your imagination take you? 

Meet Kenzie, a fifth grader with asthma and a big imagination. When she and her mother must move into a family shelter, Kenzie finds refuge in the world of her video games alongside her avatar Edwin.

Through their imaginary space travels, Kenzie learns the true meaning of home and is finally able to make new friends and find the confidence she needs to succeed in the classroom. Earth to Kenzie is a new opera written by Frances Pollock and Jessica Murphy Moo and is specifically programmed for young audiences ages 7-12.
