We're here to support local projects that make Hammersmith & Fulham a great place to live!
An education project for KS2 and KS3 students to explore the world of opera as a multi faceted art form. We want to bring a movement and music workshop to local schools - exploring the world of Opera through Verdi’s Opera "The Force of Destiny". Through these workshops we wish to demonstrate that Opera is accessible for everyone. After a difficult 18 months with young people stuck at home and accessing learning from behind schools, we want to invigorate and brighten young minds with a practical workshop that will get them up on their feet, moving, exploring the original language and libretto, singing and using their imagination.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We believe this project is of incredible value to young people and schools within the local community. We wish to bring an inclusive and accessible workshop focusing on key elements within Verdi's opera, "La Forza Del Destino". We will focus on movement, character development, singing and understanding of the original language. Our workshop is adaptable for any age although we have focused predominantly on KS2 and KS3 so that we can work with both primary and secondary ages and encourage a passion for the performing arts.
Steps to get it done:
We aim to run a three hour workshop with industry professionals culminating in an informal performance which could work as an assembly, a performance to other year groups or to parents and guardians.
