Over the course of the academic year 2018-19, Mulberry School for Girls is partnering with the English National Opera as part of their Operasquad programme. On Monday 15 October, singers, musicians and creatives from the ENO took over the whole of the school, running workshops and masterclasses and performing everywhere from the dining hall to the English Corridor. For the whole day, the school was alive with song in unexpected places, and almost every student in the school experienced the takeover day.
This is just the beginning of our relationship with ENO – throughout the year, there will also be opportunities for students to visit the ENO’s home at the London Coliseum to see productions, and to take part in a variety of programmes inspired by the operas in the ENO’s season. Mulberry UTC will also host a half-term project delivered by the ENO for young people from across London in February 2019.
