MORE than 100 students from schools in Louth are enjoying the opportunity to participate in an opera alongside some of Britain’s finest young opera singers.
A professional artistic team comprising a director, composer, choreographer, designer, three musicians and two opera singers from the world-renowned Garsington Opera worked with students from King Edward VI, Cordeaux and Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College in Louth on Thursday at the Cordeaux site, learning the basics ahead of a three month project.
The project, funded by East Lindsey District Council, builds on the links the district has made with Garsington Opera since SO Festival, when opera was beamed live to a beach for the very first time.
Ros Webber-Jones, deputy head at Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about opera and work with other schools.”
Cordeaux head Peter Kubicki added: “This is a brilliant opportunity for local pupils in Louth to experience a memorable, different, collaborative and high-quality activity.
“It is wonderful that local schools will be working together for the benefit of young people.”
