One Hour Workshop 

This is a one hour educational programme with audience participation which introduces children to the exciting world of Opera.  It is an extremely flexible and interactive workshop which works well for small groups and large, multi-school assemblies alike.

During our one hour workshop, we share a taster of scenes in English from different operas with the children. Using songs and snippets of dialogue teamed with a narrative to carry the children along with the stories, spur their imaginations about the characters and inspire them with the demonstration of highly skilled, trained voices.

NEW! 2020 Production – The Boatswain’s Mate

This hilarious comedy opera in English, The Boatswain’s Mate, explores the suffragette movement and is suitable for school audiences from KS1 to sixth form. We’ve taken this fantastic little opera gem and transformed it into a perfect three cast member production (with pianist).  This comedy gives an entertaining insight into some of the struggles and misconceptions that prompted the suffragette movement. The workshop is approximately 60 minutes long in total and can be provided for an audience of any size. Please enquire for more details and available dates.

Sound of Music 

Our Sound of Music workshop is a one day experience which introduces the children to musical theatre and the many creative challenges that are involved in putting together a production. Each child will help to create the show, have a role within the show and the opportunity to perform alongside professional singers.

Carmen Opera Experience 

Our Carmen Intensive is a highly interactive ninety-minute educational program for primary and secondary school children to learn all of the key features of putting on their own opera!

The ninety minutes culminates with a short scene including all of the children taking part as rehearsed, putting all they’ve learnt to the test. Simple props and costume changes enhance the visual effect.
