Opera Squad

Opera takeover days for schools across the country

An Opera Squad Takeover Day exposes the whole school community to opera, connects students and staff with professionals working in the industry, and uses opera as a stimulus for creative learning and curriculum support.

We deliver these immersive days of opera in partner schools across the country to:

  • Introduce the key components of Opera and develop young people’s understanding of how Opera works
  • Challenge students’ perceptions of Opera and break down stereotypes
  • Launch projects that can be continued by teachers in school throughout the term
  • Bring the school community together in an immersive, live event.

Schools are selected through local partnerships or in response to ENO activity in that area.
