Alice in OperalandA journey into well known operatic areas presented through an accessible familiar storytale.Suitable for Groups of 75+ students aged 9 – 11
Alice sits at her desk. She has lots of music homework. She complains about how boring she finds opera and how she is never going to remember all the names of the different singers or the different music notes for her music test. She throws herself on the bed, phone in her hand wishing that the phone could magically transport her somewhere far far away from her home. Suddenly the phone starts ringing, the room starts spinning and she feels herself being sucked into a powerful vacuum…
Follow Alice into Operaland and meet the opera-singing Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts and the other storybook characters.
