Course description

Create and Sing Carmen, the Royal Opera House's new national dramatic singing programme! This singing programme, based on Bizet's opera Carmen, will inspire a generation of young people to sing and engage with opera. It provides schools with a new route into singing linked to drama and character.

This full day CPD course, led by a singing specialist and director, will develop the skills of the classroom teacher to teach dramatic singing and includes follow-up resources of a 10-week scheme of work with curriculum links and specially created short films featuring Royal Opera House artists and the Youth Opera Company. The online resources include backing tracks, arrangements for children's voices and a creative singing challenge.
