Young people learn how fun opera can be, on and off the stage. In the words of camper Aria, from Summer 2020, "The Sarasota Youth Opera Summer Camp is something I look forward to each summer. It offers a unique experience not only with singing, but language, dance, costumes, makeup, set design, and opera 101. The teachers and Maestri are the best and work hard to give us the knowledge that few people ever receive. I look forward to camp every summer!"
