The Big History of Little England

Rosehill Theatre & Mahogany Opera Group – Snappy Operas

This term I will be working as MD with director Ruth Mariner and Cumbrian primary schools to create a performance of The Big History of Little England, a Snappy Opera from Mahogany Opera Group.

The Big History is a cross-curricular opera that covers the history of the UK from the Big Bang until the Brexit vote, and is a great opportunity for children to explore historical topics through music and games.

The three schools will each learn two traditional folk songs and then come together to perform the opera at Workington College.

Sadly, our performance had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, but the work that all the young people put in was extraordinary, and I hope we may be able to reschedule.
