Children in Opera

Since 1989 Capital Arts has provided children for all the major London opera companies both as child soloists and as a chorus. Our repertoire includes a large number of children’s choruses from operas and we have language specialists to work with the children when operas are not in English.

Music Director, Kathleen Shanks, is passionate about children experiencing opera. She has worked with numerous opera companies in this country and abroad. Click to read her article, 'Child's Play' in Classical Music, on children in opera.
