Youth Opera 10 to 14 introduces children who have a passion for music to opera and turns them into accomplished performers. Currently 50 children meet every Saturday during term time in Cardiff to learn singing techniques, drama skills, good rehearsal etiquette and most importantly, to have fun singing. The group is led by music director Dan Perkin.
Youth Opera offers opportunities to undertake residencies, workshops and performances, as well as the chance to undertake the Arts Award. In 2012 our 10 – 14 year olds toured Wales and England with the world premiere of Lynne Plowman and Martin Riley's World War II ghost story The Face in the Mirror, and in August 2013 our 16 – 25 year olds performed Paul Bunyan in the Wales Millennium Centre.
Watch out for our next Youth Opera 10 – 14 performance here.
