What is Playground Opera?
Playground Opera is Longborough Festival Opera's project to bring opera into schools.
Launched in 2021, Playground Opera is part of our ongoing programme to make great opera accessible to a younger audience, fully immersing them into the plots and music with participation and preparation.
Our emerging artists and musicians perform in the playgrounds of local state schools during the summer term. Last year we reached over 1500 school children aged 4-18 across 14 schools.
