Create and Sing Hansel and Gretel with The Royal Opera House

Tuesday 14th October
9.30am-3.30pm
Furzefield School, Merstham, RH1 3PA
FREE

We are pleased to announce that we will be running a teachers’ training workshop facilitated by the Royal Opera House. Based on the world-famous opera Hansel and Gretel, this Key Stage 1 and 2 singing project will inspire school children to engage with opera through story, character and song.

This free workshop will be led by a professional opera director and vocal leader at the Royal Opera House. The CPD session will introduce teachers to the story and key characters of Hansel and Gretel, using a variety of creative drama and singing exercises that will equip them to deliver the programme creatively in their schools. The session will cover five songs from the production that have been specifically adapted for a primary school audience.

Through the session, teachers will be given the opportunity to explore how they can deliver the project over a two-, five- or ten-week period at their school, culminating in a performance.

The CPD will cover a range of areas including:

  • Dramatic singing
  • Theatrical staging
  • Primary music pedagogy
  • Basic conducting technique

The Create and Sing programme helps you deliver an exciting, curriculum-based course to your primary school class, learning about opera and dramatic singing along the way! No previous experience of opera is necessary, as we provide you with the tools you will need to stage your own performance of Hansel and Gretel. According to your preferred level of engagement, you can choose from the two-, five- and ten-lesson versions of the course.
