Discovering Dardanus

ETO is offering free secondary school workshops this autumn to accompany our production of Rameau’s ravishing opera Dardanus.

ETO’s incredibly rare production of Rameau’s masterpiece offers students not just the chance to explore the opera itself, but also to find out about the art form in general. Loosely based on the Greek myth of Dardanus, Rameau’s colourful and vivid score brings to life a world torn by monsters, magic and war, where the affection of two lovers will be tested to its limits.

In the local theatre ETO’s staff director will talk with students about the opera; he will also explain how the production has travelled from an original concept to the stage with the help of the designer’s model box. Students will meet a few members of the cast and talk not just about their roles, but about the life of a working singer. They will then have a tour of the set before curtain-up on the evening of the performance. After the show, students will be invited to write reviews, which ETO will display on our website and blog.

This is a unique opportunity to explore the real world of opera and how it is produced. At the core of the experience is the chance to see a great opera in a brand new production by ETO’s Olivier Award-winning team, performed by some of the country’s finest young singers.

This experience is aimed at Music or Drama GCSE or A-level groups, but would be suitable for any keen secondary school-aged group.

For more information or to book this experience, please contact Daniel Coelho or call 020 7833 2555.
