Do you know the building blocks of opera? Learn all about what makes opera opera in this fast-paced interactive edutainment concert suitable for elementary school audiences and their families.

Inspired by Portland’s food cart culture, Opera a la Cart is a mobile performance venue that brings live opera performance directly into the community spaces where people gather. Designed and built by architecture students at Portland State University, the cart features a fold-out stage and a “menu” of operatic specials of the day to be sung by local artists.
