Our work with young people and the community is an important part of our activity, inspiring and encouraging a connection to the performing arts.
Opera is the thrilling marriage of many art forms – song, storytelling, drama, design, music – and is our lifeblood at Longborough. We want to pass this passion on to our local community and beyond. There is a need to challenge the preconceptions about opera, and to provide an affordable entry point from which to explore and experience.
Our work includes a youth chorus and summer school for local young performers; partnerships with schools across Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and the West Midlands; and Playground Opera, a small-scale touring production designed for school playgrounds.
