Young People As Audience, Participants, Creators, And Leaders

Operasonic is passionate about opera and as an artform that connects with people in a direct and visceral way. We are also passionate about young people and their potential and creativity. We enable young people to own opera, as audiences, as participants, as creators, as leaders. Operasonic creates a range of opportunities for young people to explore, create and experience opera, and we put participation at the heart of every creative process we undertake. We work with a wide range of artists who are all committed to making amazing opera with young people.

A flagship project:
Newport Legends is a large scale schools opera-writing project which took place in 2016 2017. Four groups wrote a mini-opera exploring legends from Newport.

Why they’re RESEO members:
I am a RESEO member because I love to find out about the amazing work that is going on across the world. It helps me to create my own work.
