The Barber of Seville | Theatre Royal, Norwich

The Barber of Seville was the incredible opera performed to an enthused audience at the Norwich Theatre Royall on Sunday as three Norwich schools (Mile Cross Primary School, Valley Academy & St Augustine’s ) took to the stage & performed their own inspired creations of the Barber of Seville that had been developed over several weeks with the help & guidance from a professional team of musicians & directors.
Soprano was again performed by the lovely Lynsey Docherty, while the guest Baritone spot was taken up by Philip Smith.

Should you ever have the opportunity to go and see one of the Norfolk Schools Projects then I would highly recommend it.

Norfolk Schools Project | Norwich

I feel privileged to be able to continue my long association with the team behind the Norfolk Schools Project at the Norwich Theatre Royal The Autumn project is well underway and last week I took a trip to Valley Primary Academy in Norwich for the Joint Singing Workshop, which sees all three schools come together for an afternoon of creative expression ahead of their performances at the theatre this coming Sunday. Embracing their roles, it was a joy to watch the children fulfill their creative potential.

Madama Butterfly | Theatre Royal | By the kids of Norfolk

The Opera of Madame Butterfly was without doubt the highlight of the weekend in Norwich. The opera which was performed at a packed Norwich Theatre Royal by Salhouse, Little Plumstead and Neatishead Schools.

The children began this with a workshop at the end of last term and have had a singing/drama workshop every week run by professional musicians, culminating in a week’s worth of creativity and will be developing over twenty identified skills. The children will also complete written tasks after their experiences to gather evidence for a National Arts Award.
