During the past week I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Theatre Royal in Norwich, on their Norfolk Schools Project. This has been a wonderful contract and opportunity I have to work with a progressive theatre.
The schools project is a great opportunity for schools in Norfolk to work with professional opera singers and musicians and put together a play or opera based on the children’s own themes.
The project typically takes around 3 months from start to finish, with hours of fun rehearsing at the schools and then the day of the performance at the theatre, in front of a packed auditorium.
This past week I visited a junior school in the Norfolk area to document some of the final rehearsals – it was great fun and really moving to watch how focused and passionate the children are.
