Carmen & the Balloon of Hate

Our After School Opera Club are gearing up for their own final production inspired by Carmen but with their own ideas for new songs, spoken scenes and characters. They’ve worked so hard in their weekly sessions since January evolving these ideas as well as improving their acting and singing skills and we are so proud of how they’ve all developed! As part of their work they recently had a brilliant session with set designer Sorcha Corcoran and costume designer Hannah Williams where they learnt more about theatre design and shared their ideas about what their show should look like with the designers. I think every production of Carmen should have a garden party and a balloon of hate, don’t you?!

We are very excited to see the group’s final performance after a full week of rehearsals in the summer holidays and they will also be able to discuss their production with our professional opera singers and musicians. And then the group will also come and see our professional street performance the following week. It’s going to be a busy summer!
