Our Creative Teams

Our creative teams are drawn from the best in the opera world from across the UK. We have a pool of highly talented directors, composers, singers and designers with a track record of delivering the best in terms of creativity and community engagement.

Live Relay Films

Each year we film an opera that can then be used as a resource for schools and community groups. In 2015 we shared two opera videos with up to 11 schools. We are currently able to show:

Mozart's Così fan tutte 
Offenbach's Vert-Vert

Here are the highlights of our 2014 production of Vert-Vert

 

Mandeville School Residency Film

During our 2014 season we developed a new relationship with the Mandeville School, in Aylesbury, and had a week long residency where a group of 50 young people devised, composed, designed and performed their own version of The Cunning Little Vixen. This is a short film about the experiences of the young people, teachers and artists involved. 

 

 

Large-Scale Community Projects

As part of the evaluation process of Road Rage: A Community Opera, an open meeting was set up to enable us to share our experiences and discuss these in a wider context, relating to other people's experiences and putting on large-scale education projects both locally and nationally. We created a series of short films so other arts organisations going forward are able to better understand the Road Rage project, the benefits and challenges presented by large-scale community projects, and the wider context of such projects for the future.
