The Midnight Moon

- Spring 2010

The Midnight Moon is a workshop based on the story and music of Britten’s opera A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and looks in particular at the story of the fairies.

ETO has worked with special schools across the country for many years. The Midnight Moon is a workshop based on the story and music of Britten’s opera A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and looks in particular at the story of the fairies. Fully designed it is intended to engage with children with profound learning difficulties and special needs, including children who are on the severe end of the autistic spectrum. An ETO team consisting of 2 singer-actors, 2 players and a director (all from the cast, orchestra and production team of the show) will explore the magical world of Dream in many delightful, multi-sensory ways. Participants will hear, see, touch and smell the world of an enchanted forest, and will take part in magical transformations. The workshop will include some level of participation, depending on the needs of the students involved.

ETO’s outreach department, winner of this year’s RPS Music Award for education, having been nominated for 2 further RPS awards in the last 3 years, is renowned for the quality, variety and depth of its work: creative workshops, community opera, commissioned new operas for young people, residencies in special schools, are all part of our ongoing commitment to work in and with communities across the UK.
