Let’s make an Opera!

As a part of our missions to bring opera to everyone, we have decided to build a pedagogical project for secondary schools to discover, build, practice opera.

This will involve our best singers and our children choir, as they share their passion for western classical music and opera in very rare and inspiring context, schools activities.

It will be the first time and we are really very excited about it!

The opera for the workshop is the famous, The Little Sweep by Benjamin Britten with a libretto by Eric Crozier.

There is a first part that takes the form of a play in which the cast portray contemporary amateur performers conceiving, creating and rehearsing the opera. Intended as an introduction to and demystification of the operatic genre.

Our pedagogical workshops will guide the students through the process of putting together an opera show, by way of the following options:

 

OPTIONS Description Details
