Royal Opera Create and Sing ‘Hansel and Gretel’

We are EXTREMELY excited to announce that we are doing a whole-school project based on the opera ‘Hansel and Gretel’. This is in coalition with the Royal Opera House’s ‘Create and Sing’ project (

Each year group at Monteagle will have the opportunity to explore opera – the art form which combines music, singing and drama to tell exciting stories. We will also explore the story of Hansel and Gretel, and be working towards our own arrangments of some of the songs from this famous show.

Opera may seem intimidating, but really it is acting through song to tell adventure stories and fairytales.

Check out some of our Year 4 musicians expressing emotion through a famous song. Which emotion is each group is exploring?
