Sem'ya

Sem’ya (Family), our third new opera, marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution

Our third major collaboration in as many years with Holy Trinity and St Silas Primary School in Camden takes place this term, with performances in December. Holy Trinity and St Silas is a remarkable school, with the arts at the centre of its learning.

Two brand new operas have been created with the whole school: Three Matches in 2015 (about a refugee’s journey to Europe) and Fire Children in 2016 (a contemporary take on the Great Fire of 1666).

Sem’ya (Family) is our third new opera, and marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution, focussing on the family and household of Nicholas II. The pupils will create many of the opera’s elements, including the lyrics and the songs, and much of the narrative. Rachel Leach is the composer, and we are joined by musicians from the Royal Academy of Music for the final performances. The story will encompass the haemophiliac Prince Alexei, the mad priest Rasputin, and the fabulous wealth of the Tsar and his family, as well as its tragic end in Ekaterinberg.
