The Canadian Children’s Opera Company occupies a unique position as the only permanent children’s opera company in Canada, and one of only a handful in the world. It commissions, produces, records and tours new operas and choral music, with children as both the principal performers and main audience. The company also regularly collaborates with other leading arts organizations, including acting as the children’s chorus for the Canadian Opera Company. The group includes six divisions plus an outreach arm (OPERAtion KIDS), involving hundreds of children and youth ages 3 through 19.
Now celebrating its 50th season, the CCOC is led by artistic director Dean Burry, managing director Ken Hall and music director Teri Dunn.
The CCOC offers children and youth a unique experience, giving members unparalleled performance opportunities and life skills along with age-appropriate vocal and dramatic training. Opera is simply storytelling with music, and those are two things that kids and youth love!
The 2017/18 season include a 50th celebration concert at the Four Seasons Centre and a major new opera commission: The Monkiest King.
