Activities for young children and families


We support teachers and schools to deliver the curriculum in music and drama, creating extraordinary experiences in schools across the North of England.

Our Schools work reaches large numbers of children and young people, delivering a high quality first experience of opera through Schools’ Matinee performances, the creation of work especially for a young audience, and connecting with our award-winning professional Chorus and Orchestra.
