Nevill Holt Opera workshops - 2019

February 2019

Year 5 have commenced their theatre workshops with Nevill Holt Opera. During the first session, they thoroughly enjoyed the warm up exercises and going through their performance of ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’. 

The sessions are being led by Nicholas Chalmers (conductor) and Rachel Wise (assistant director and choreographer).

We hope that their enthusiasm continues and they are able to showcase their talents in the final performance at Charnwood College (more details to follow).

This term, the Year 5s have been taking part in an exciting project with Nevill Holt Opera to learn songs from the Benjamin Britten opera based on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The children participated in three workshops led by the Opera Company and their hard work culminated in a fantastic performance at Charnwood College with other schools in from the area.  All of the children worked extremely hard to learn some difficult songs and we are very proud of the perseverance and enthusiasm they have shown.

On Monday 10th June, we travelled to Nevill Holt Opera near Market Harbarough to watch the dress rehearsal of Midsummer's Night Dream.  It was absolutely amazing to see the performers live on stage.
