Taking opera and ballet into your own hands

In Opera & Ballet in Action workshops, 5 to 6 years olds will experience the fascinating world of opera and ballet by playing instruments, dancing, and making art and crafts.

Themes

The Opera & Ballet in Action workshops focus on a different art form each month. The workshops are always themed on a main auditorium production of the current repertoire. The duration of each workshop is 1h 30min.

As well as exploring different art forms, every workshop includes crafting a souvenir to take home.

Feedback from children

Art Breaks for Children

I really liked doing the crafts. Jumping on the circular platforms was fun.

It was fun to get dressed up. I liked to dance the Dance of the Little Swans.

It was fun to eat my packed snack at the opera.

The best thing was the performance of Swan Lake. I was the wizard.
