English National Opera

 ENO Baylis, ENO’s Learning and Participation team, are very proud of the work they do with schools, and enjoy forming strong relationships with teachers and students alike. They are committed to working closely with teachers and students to develop projects for schools and young people that respond to their needs and interests.

“It is the opera visits that students mention as one of their most powerful experiences.”

“[The students] were absolutely mesmerised, learnt greatly from Britten's orchestration and from the beautiful production.”

In 2010 The ENO Baylis team will look to broaden the reach of their work with teachers, especially in the area of devising projects. They are launching two online creative environments for teachers, artists, youth workers, students and young people to devise exciting, relevant and inspirational work.

Why not bring your class to the opera?

Enjoy Opera is a programme that gives secondary school groups the opportunity to attend a selection of ENO performances at the London Coliseum for only £8 a ticket – a saving of up to £30! For certain productions there are preperformance workshops to enhance and support your visit. Workshops vary depending on the production, are fully participatory and will involve anything from singing to movement, drama, improvisation and discussion.

Join Catalyst, a forum for teachers, artists and youth workers interested in sharing ideas with ENO Baylis for future projects and collaborations. Members have the opportunity to attend performances and meet together to find out more about ENO’s repertoire and vision, share their experiences and develop relevant project ideas with the ENO Baylis team. Individuals from the communities we work with, particularly Westminster, are also invited to join the online forum. You can also join the ENO Catalyst group on Facebook.

ENO’s Westminster Youth Ensemble is a dynamic collective of young people aged 12-16. The Ensemble gives young people the chance to work alongside the creative teams behind ENO’s main stage productions – from designers and directors, to choreographers and conductors – plus well-known artists from a range of disciplines. It’s all about exploring different art forms, creating new work and having fun! Spread the word among your students and get in touch for more details!
