ENO Opera Squad is our flagship learning and participation programme that takes our orchestra and singers directly into schools to introduce young people from a wide range of backgrounds to live classical music and opera.
Many young people do not get the opportunity to experience the full force and power of an orchestra or professional opera singers. ENO Opera Squad is an entertaining interactive performance focussing on the elements of music, featuring over 30 members of the ENO Orchestra and three professional opera singers.
Since 2011, we have performed to over 11,500 young people from 81 schools across Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Enfield, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.
Following each visit by ENO Opera Squad, we encourage schools to attend performances at the London Coliseum, providing free dress rehearsal tickets and accessible opera guides, thanks to the generosity of our trust & foundations supporters.
