The Storybook Project

Welcome to the New Orleans Opera’s Storybook Project: a new, online adventure you can join at school or at home! Created by Director of Community Partnerships and Education, Dr. Tara A. Melvin, and directed by Dylan Trần, New Orleans Opera’s Storybook Project is a free program geared toward our youngest audiences.

Listen to local storytellers as they share beloved children’s books like Goodnight Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. After each story, a local opera singer performs a classical piece of music in the same literary theme. The Storybook Project is an engaging way to experience these timeless works and is certain to make new friends of your old favorites.
