Opera Mouse: Workshop and Performance

  • New Theatre Royal 20-24 Guildhall Walk Portsmouth, PO1 2DD United Kingdom (map)

We are very excited about a partnership project with the New Theatre Royal for gifted and talented singers (aged 7-10). We are working with International Artist Melanie Gall to introduce opera to children.

The workshop with bring together children from across the city at the New Theatre Royal followed by a performance of the Opera Mouse. The opera is about Tilly Mouse who lives under an opera house, and she just loves to sing! Her dream is to perform on stage. But whenever anybody sees her, they scream and run away. With determination, imagination, and help from her friends, Tilly proves that even a mouse can be a star! The show features songs and arias from several operas, including The Magic Flute. Opera Mouse is a blend of puppets, audience participation and actual opera singing.
