“The company produces what it describes as ‘Opera for, by and with children’. Feedback from participants and teachers has been extraordinarily positive, even eulogistic. And, the statistics too are impressive. In 2012, up to 50,000 children drawn from 250 schools in 2012 benefitted from the company’s multidisciplinary programmes; this year’s four-phase project exploring Christoph Willibald Gluck’s opera, Orpheus and Eurydice, will involve over 10,000 children from 55 schools, as well as talented designers studying the BA in Performance Design and Practice at Central St Martins (part of the University of the Arts London), amateur singers and musicians, along with some professional singers, musicians and theatre practitioners.”

“Warmest congratulations to all concerned for a project which provides excellent music and performing arts education for school students at several levels and also offers an unusual focus to design students – not to mention work opportunities for three young opera singers, a fine violinist  pianist/ MD and numerous back stagers and other cast members including a chorus. It is also good to see the designers in non-singing roles as additional actors too.”
