Opera North @ Rodillian
Thirty pupils from Years 7 and 8 are currently involved in a music project being delivered by Opera North. The pupils are taking part in a series of workshops in which they are developing a wide range of performance skills. They are also studying Donizetti’s opera ‘The Elixir of Love’ whilst composing their own work. The pupils will then perform their own opera at Leeds Grand Theatre to an audience consisting of pupils from other local schools who are also involved in the project.
The culmination of the project will involve all pupils, together with other students from across the academy, attending a professional performance of ‘The Elixir of Love’ at the Grand Theatre on 23 February, 2016.
