Pirates of Penzance was Opera Holland Park’s pilot intergenerational project for KS2 primary school children and individuals with varying forms and stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Two year 5 classes from St Charles Primary School (RBKC) and service users from a nearby Alzheimer’s day centre, Chamberlain House, enjoyed a variety of activities based around popular themes and music from Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance, culminating with a performance of the operetta delivered by a professional cast of opera singers.
