OUR VISION

Ojai Youth Opera (OYO)  is dedicated to enriching the lives of Ojai’s youth, community and the wider world through the study, performance, development and lifelong appreciation for Opera and all of its associated Production Arts by presenting a full calendar year of productions-- both classical and original works from voices in the community of Ojai and around the world-- creating opportunity for discovery, fostering transformative outreach and education about the art form and encouraging its growth through our distinct Ojai educational programs,  workshops and camps.

Our unique and successful model is offered to the global community through our publishing arm,  offering proven, dynamic Opera workshop and educational curriculums,  educational and production videos, licensing of original works and livestreaming of OYO performances throughout the year. 

OUR MISSION

We believe, through the spirit of youth, the transformative art form of Opera awakens the authentic expression of humanity and keeps it alive.
