Royal Opera Create and Sing

Mrs Sage, Peripatetic Music Teacher

16th March 2023

Years 3 and 4 enjoyed an afternoon of music making with Mrs Sage and an introduction to the Create and Sing programme from the Royal Opera House. Children sang melodies from the opera with adapted words, introducing the characters and their roles in the opera. Children sang these in two parts with Mrs Sage and Mr Fenning helping them along the way.

After this it was time to add some drama to the mix, so in small groups, they chose a Papageno (the bird catcher), and improvised a short performance to demonstrate Papageno casting his nets, charming the birds from the trees and catching them. Some groups had some cheeky birds who managed to get away!

"All children were a joy to teach and threw themselves into the tasks. Well done!" Mrs Sage
