How can opera play a part in developing essential skills in young people – curiosity, leadership, persistence, resilience? Combining a broad range of expressive arts – music, drama, dance, design, creative writing and visual arts – we use opera to nurture creativity and give young people a platform from which to explore and develop their imagination.
We have three matinées on offer in June 2023: Mozart’s great opera, Cosi fan tutte; Orfeo ed Euridice / Dido and Aeneas - a double bill featuring two early operas which changed the course of operatic history; and, to round it off, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the evolution of Duke Ellington in one sitting… Ellington: From Stride to Strings (with a twist!) is not one to miss.
