School Workshops

Education 7

The best musical day of my life

A Student

Alongside our public performances, Longborough delivers an ambitious education programme that introduces opera to local schools where access to the arts is often limited.

In workshops taking place across Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, students from ages 3 to 18 can get hands-on with fantastic opportunities for creativity. In 2018, over 400 students have been inspired by day-long workshops in their school, getting to know the story and characters of some of our productions.

This year, for the first time, we are introducing these future opera fans to Wagner. With help from the creative team behind our 2018 production, secondary school students will see behind the scenes of Der fliegende Holländer, including an exclusive presentation from director Thomas Guthrie together with members of the cast. Every year our workshops are reaching more and more young people, but we need your help.
