Summer Camps: A Creative AlternativeMaestro Robert Lyall is the General and Artistic Director for the New Orleans Opera Company. This year, the New Orleans Opera Association will host two popular summer camps for young people. 

In this podcast, Maestro describes how these unique, hands-on summer camps help children develop their creative talents and give them confidence to take on new challenges.

The 2019 Music, Drama and Technical Theatre Camp is for children ages 9-12 years. The camp will run from July 15 through July 19; campers meet from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day. The Technical Camp also meets in June; it has several different sections for children in various age groups. Dates vary for each section; however, all campers will meet from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
