Primary Schools

We invite primary school groups to glimpse behind the scenes at ENO, to watch rehearsals and visit backstage, opening up the world of opera. We support school groups to experience our fully staged productions by offering a limited number of free tickets to dress rehearsals across the season, and subsidised tickets for every performance. If you would like to discuss how your school can get involved in our programme, please contact us.

We encourage families who don’t typically access the arts to take part in our Family Days. These open up the story, characters and music of an opera, with the chance to participate in singing and making activities with professional artists before experiencing a performance. We give priority to families of pupils at our partner schools in Brent, Lambeth and Westminster, families in the NSPCC’s network, and looked after children.
