People’s Opera: Come and Join

EVER wanted to play your part on stage, design a costume, paint some scenery or make a prop?

Work is starting now to create a brand new work, the High House People’s Opera, to be performed at the Royal Opera House Production Park site in autumn 2010. You can get involved at the very start of the creative process.

The High House People’s Opera has evolved from the Purfleet Roots project run last year for local residents to discover more about the High House site. The ROH Education team in Thurrock will run the workshops which are open to everyone of all ages and abilities.

Education Manager, Gabrielle Foster-Still said: “The Royal Opera House team wants to involve all the residents of Thurrock in a genuinely unique event created by local people.

“It doesn’t matter if you have no experience, come and discover what you can do. Learn with us.”

Workshops will take place on Saturday afternoons beginning on 23 January at Purfleet Primary School.

Working with professionals from the creative arts, Thurrock residents will have the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, uncover more about the fascinating place in which they live and play a role in its creative future. No special skills are needed, just an enthusiasm to get involved and have fun.

Workshops will also be running in schools across Thurrock to develop the High House People’s Opera with the students and teachers.
