Here at Opera Holland Park we know music and drama are key to a child’s development, and to family well-being. Our Inspire team has devised a series of OperaUNITY family workshops to give you and your children the chance to bond and unite through interactive music, movement and storytelling.

This year we are running 5 family-friendly workshops, packed with music, storytelling, dance, and crafts. Join us this summer for an exploration of some of our old operas, as well as an exciting three-day festival exploring the story of Hansel and Gretel, building an enchanted forest and creating gingerbread people to go on adventures with.

The first two workshops are aimed at pre-school children aged 0–4, and the Hansel and Gretel themed, Into the Woods Festival is suitable for children aged 3 – 7. Each session blends music, movement, drama and storytelling, bringing opera to life with puppets, toys, live performances and singalong action.

Each session lasts for approx. 45 minutes.
