TURTLE OPERA

TURTLE OPERA IS A DRAMA AND MUSIC PROJECT FOR 10-14 YEAR OLDS WITH AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDERS.

Turtle Opera, free for all the participants, is ten half-day Saturday workshops that culminate in a performance attended by the participants’ family and friends and interested professionals. The workshop leaders led the series with expertise in drama, music, movement, and visual art supported by members of the Opera House orchestra.

“I don’t mean to be dramatic about it but Turtle Opera has completely changed our lives. Pascal walked out of the first session, and it was as if “Oh my god, it’s ok to be autistic”. For the first time in his life he picked up the phone and he now talks regularly to his grandparents in Australia. He is a changed child.” Mother of a participant.
