Rock Me Amadeus

Thornaby Pavilion reverberated to the sound of opera as members of The Royal Opera house were joined by 600 Stockton school children over 2 days as they performed Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

This was Royal Opera House’s biggest outreach project to date and showcased the exceptional talents of local children and teachers. The Royal Opera House were touring over 5 days throughout the Tees Valley. The project was organised by Tees Valley Music Service and Susan Robertson, Manager of Tees Valley Music Service said “We are thrilled to partner with the Royal Opera House for this landmark project. The collaboration aims to inspire and nurture the next generation of musicians, providing them with the invaluable experience of working with world-class artists. It not only provides an exceptional educational experience but also enriches our community by bringing a world leading institution such as the Royal Opera House to Teesside to perform Opera with young people, for their families.”

Along with a large audience of proud parents/carers and family members, BBC Look North were in attendance to film the performance and interview school children and members of the Royal Opera House ensemble.

Amy McGann, Head of the Royal Opera House National Schools Programme, says:  “The Royal Opera House National Schools Programme continues to flourish across the UK thanks to our incredible partnerships with schools, teachers and organisations such as Tees Valley Music Service. We are passionate about working with likeminded people to ensure that the Royal Opera House can deliver curriculum-led training, resources and experiences that enhance the creative confidence of teachers and students in the classroom. We are thrilled that our work with Tees Valley Music Service continues to thrive, and that thousands of children in the Tees Valley are able to learn, sing, and connect with the arts together.”
