About

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Thank you for visiting OperaTales.com. I consider it a privilege to be able to share my children’s operas with you and hope you’ll find the information provided here useful.

Over the years I’ve been guided by the light of a very simple thought while writing and producing operas for children:

When young people have fun doing something for the first time, it’s a pretty good bet they’ll want to do it again.

Admittedly, this little adage seems rather too obvious to be profound, but I believe its usefulness in presenting opera as a first time experience cannot be overstated. My hope for all who produce the operas I’ve written for young people is that reports of having "had fun" will resonate long after you’ve packed up sets and costumes and said goodbye. To that end I am most grateful for your consideration.

Thanks again, John
