Opera Taster Workshops

We are thrilled to be able to provide Opera Taster Workshops in 2024 as part of our The Elixir of Love programme of work kindly funded by Postcode Community Trust, John Thaw Foundation and Tescos Stronger Starts. The workshops will take place in London Boroughs of Merton, Wandsworth and Croydon in collaboration with the local Music Education Hubs.

Since 2016 we have run a programme of successful complimentary Opera Taster Workshops at local schools. Together with the music hubs, local schools are offered an introduction to opera workshop in our fun, modern, accessible Baseless Fabric style. Led by a professional drama practitioner, music practitioner and opera singer, students learn about opera, hear a professional opera singer sing live right in front of them (often for the first time) and sing and act out the characters from a section of a classic opera – in a modern accessible Baseless Fabric style – themselves.

These workshops receive universally positive feedback from teachers and often have a waiting list of over 30 schools. Meanwhile, student feedback is equally wonderful. Last year 99% of students said that they liked the workshop with 81% of those saying they loved it. 85% of students said that after the workshop they would now definitely attend or consider attending an opera!

Any primary schools interested in taking part in 2024 please contact us to express your interest!
