We bring opera and musical theatre to schools and introduce these amazing and beautiful styles of music to children in a way that they can understand and relate to. Many people think of opera as something for the older, slower passed generation to enjoy. We begin by blowing this misunderstanding out of the water and engage the children with plots, stories and facts that spur their imaginations and inspire them to greater aspirations. Children come away from an OperasCool! workshops having shed the idea that opera is ‘scary’ or ‘boring’ and literally leave singing the praises of opera in their own dramatic interpretations.
“”What have you done to my son? He’s inspired!”
(- Parent quote the day after, Codicote Primary School)”
Using scenes from a variety of operas we involve the children in the journey of discovering their stories and the wonderful music. We make this style of music and area of performing arts accessible to all, and fantastic fun.
