OperaUNITY is back for 2023, with five new fun-packed family workshops full of music, dance and storytelling. Each session explores a 2022 or 2023 production, so you and the little ones in your life can enjoy the operas together.
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.
