Holiday Family Festival

Calling all kids!

The Met is thrilled to welcome our youngest opera lovers back to the opera house with two family-friendly operas this holiday season: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute (December 10–January 5) and Jules Massenet’s Cinderella (December 17–January 3). Both of these operas are being shown in abridged, English-language versions with an approximate run time of 90 minutes, and they are guaranteed to delight and enchant audiences of all ages.

Below, you’ll find illustrated synopses, coloring pages and activity sheets, and in-depth opera guides that will help you keep enjoying the adventure and the magic of these operas—before, during, and after the show.

Please remember that ALL audience members, regardless of age, must be fully vaccinated to enter the Met Opera House. For more information, see our commitment to keeping our audiences safe.
