Children's Choruses - Michigan Opera Theatre

The Michigan Opera Theatre Children’s Chorus (MOTCC) is a permanent children’s ensemble for metropolitan Detroit youth interested in vocal musical theatrical art. It provides exceptional choral music and theatrical performance instruction in a professional environment to young people.

Now in its 11th year, the MOTCC presents an annual holiday concert at the Detroit Opera House in December and produces its own fully staged children’s opera every spring. Past performances have included the Detroit premiere of Seymour Barab’s The Maker of Illusions, the Detroit premiere of Cary John Franklin’s The Very Last Green Thing, Malcolm Williamson’s The Happy Prince and Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore. In March, 2014 the MOTCC presented Hans Krása’s Brundibár with Ela Stein Weissberger, a Holocaust survivor and original cast member, participating in the production.
