Youth and Community

We are looking for young people who enjoy a variety of art forms to take part in an exciting project with us.

Opera Engage is an amazing opportunity for 10-18 year olds to develop new skills combining composing, singing, acting, and designing. Guided by a professional creative team, you will devise and create an original piece of music theatre inspired by Tosca, one of the best-loved operas in the world.

This five-day project will run during the 2018 February half term. You will work daily with the creative team to devise your Tosca inspired showcase, which will be performed at the end of the final day (Friday 16 February, 5pm).

The culmination of the project will be an opportunity for all participants to see our production of Tosca at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton with a friend or family member in March 2018.

Booking includes:

• 5-day workshop course from 12–16 February 2018

• Showcase performance (for family and friends) of the devised piece on 16 February.

• Ticket to see WNO Tosca on 22 March 2018 at Mayflower Theatre. Additional tickets available for family members and friends at a discounted rate.

Opera Engage is a partnership project between Welsh National Opera and Mayflower Theatre. Previous Opera Engage projects (2015-2017) have included Hansel and Gretel, In Parenthesis, Sweeney Todd and La bohéme. We look forward to providing more young people (aged 10-18) with the opportunity to learn, develop and indulge in the world of opera, theatre and storytelling.
