Into Opera is committed to producing imaginative education projects.
It has been proven that an education in the Arts helps children develop creative, analytical and problem solving skills that greatly improve their skills in all subjects, as well as giving them self confidence and a way to express themselves. We have seen this for ourselves through Into Opera education projects.
Since September 2017, Into Opera has introduced 1,758 children to opera.
We even submitted evidence to Parliament about the positive social impact of our first major education project 'A King's Ransom'.
If you are a teacher, parent, arts organisation or music hub in the UK reading this, why not get in touch with us and see what opera experiences we could bring to schools, colleges and the community in your local area? Tell us what you would like to achieve and let us shape a project to suit your needs.
Into Opera believes that all young people should have the chance to enjoy a high quality cultural education.
"I believe the learning that has the greatest long-term impact takes place when there is enjoyment in an activity and when children are emotionally engaged. I believe this in turn stirs a child’s curiosity, ignites their imagination and boosts their over all engagement and ability to develop ideas and express those ideas with confidence."
Genevieve Raghu, Artistic Director Into Opera
Into Opera offers drama, music and ‘introduction to opera’ workshops to schools for age groups ranging from 7-18 across the UK. We can also run workshops on specific operas. Workshops will run by artists working professionally in opera and who specialise in a specific creative discipline. This may include: opera singers, music directors, stage directors, choreographers, designers, composers… so that we build bespoke creative packages for each individual workshop or set of workshops offered.
Into Opera are an Arts Award Supporter and are, therefore, in a position to collaborate with schools to provide opportunities for them to gain their Arts Award or Arts Mark.
With a background in business and marketing, our artistic director also offers workshops for businesses developing presentation, public speaking and audience engagement skills. These workshops can can be tailored to meet the needs of an individual business. Contact us for more information.
