Opera Mix

School residencies and other projects involving young people from London and the South West due to take place in the first half of 2013.

In 2013 we have ambitious creative projects in London, the South and the West. All the projects will lead to performance, and all will be created by the participants working alongside a professional team, typically including a composer, a director and a designer. For most of these projects we are joined by students from the Royal Academy of Music.

Hackney Empire, London

In the half-term week of the spring term we are working with some 30 young people from across Hackney to create a new opera in response to Simon Boccanegra. The participants, chosen through the participation scheme at the Empire, will create a new story, with new songs and lyrics, as well as design.
Dates: 18-22 February

Poole School and Victoria Education Centre

We are delighted to be collaborating with Poole High School and post-16 students from Victoria Education Centre in Poole in March 2013. A week-long residency will lead to a performance at the end of the week. This new initiative combines students of very different skills and abilities. A performance of the new work will take place on the 22nd March.
Dates: 18-22 March

Marlwood and New Siblands Schools, Bristol

We return to Marlwood in the summer with a residential week, working alongside some 70 students from this secondary school and from New Siblands Special School. Severn Stories in 2011 was a remarkable success, and this year we again return to the theme of the river, though in a darker form, as it becomes the equivalent of the River Styx. This project was workshopped in the autumn of 2012. The project is made possible by the incredible energy and enthusiasm of Becky Ferguson and the staff of both schools. Performances are on Friday 5th July in Marlwood School.
Dates: 1-5 July 2013

Chipping Sodbury School, near Bath

Under the Hill was a highpoint of ETO’s education work in 2012, representing a real integration of skills, abilities, talents and energy. We are delighted to be returning to the school, and to be working with students from the secondary school, together with pupils from a local primary and special school once again. As ever we are deeply indebted to Andrea Williams – and her team – for her unflagging support and enthusiasm. Performances are on Friday 12th July in Chipping Sodbury School.
Dates: 8-12 July 2013
