The Ghost of Dickens' Past

A new opera about Charles Dickens

English Touring Opera return to Holy Trinity and St Silas Primary School in Camden in the autumn to create a new opera with 120 pupils. This special partnership is now in its 4th year, and the new project follows Sand Surf Snow, Fire Children and Sem’ye: three operas created with the school’s KS2 classes. Performances are in early December.

The story will look at the creation of A Christmas Carol, Dickens’ famous novel about the transformation of the miser Scrooge at Christmastime, through the visitation of ghosts past and present. What is often forgotten is the experience of Dickens himself as a child, at a time when children often died young in appalling conditions. Four classes in the school will help create the story, lyrics and music of the new ambitious opera, as well as perform.
