The Royal Opera House’s annual Sounding Out returns for May half term, offering children aged seven and over and their families another chance to take part in a range of creative activities at the famous venue.
The event kicks off on 30 May with a free open day from 12:00 to 16:00 in the Paul Hamlyn Hall at the Royal Opera House. Families can participate in singing, dancing activities, try on costumes or create a puppet. Food is available from a BBQ on the terrace.
Sounding Out continues with a series of ticketed workshops throughout the week of 31 May to 4 June, in which children and their families can learn to sing, dance and make music with the help of Royal Opera House professionals.
Participants can learn how to create a costume for an opera or ballet; write their own libretto; compose a piece of music from scratch; explore the ballet Swan Lake in a dance workshop; make a silent film; or help artists of the Royal Opera House create a brand new work.
Full details of all workshops, including dates, session lengths and ticket prices, are available on the Royal Opera House website.
All children visiting the open day or participating in the workshops must be accompanied by an adult.
