What is Inspire?

Our Inspire education programme aims to inspire and encourage all members of the community to experience, discover and actively participate in opera and classical music, developing their taste and knowledge and bringing the art form to as wide an audience as possible.

Our Inspire team have worked extensively with the RNIB, SANE, and the Royal Hospital Chelsea, bringing opera to those who use those services. They work in care centres around RBKC and Hammersmith & Fulham, with people with severe learning difficulties and dementia, tailoring each programme to the needs of each of the participants.

The Inspire team also work in schools within the local boroughs using a workshop based on our production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, with the aim to introduce opera to those who may have not been exposed to it before.

OHP run a variety of innovative and inclusive programmes to engage people of all ages. Through the project we hope to enrich the lives of many and to deliver a programme of activities and options encouraging and developing:

  • positive/aspirational activity
  • emotional and social intervention
  • transitional activities
  • health and well being

A major aspect of the Inspire Project is our free ticket schemes for our older patrons and young people. As well as our INSPIRE tickets which are available to everyone and are offered at subsidised prices.

We are always looking for ways to develop the Inspire programme. If you work with a community group and have an idea about how the company could work with you, we’d love to hear from you. Email us or call 020 3846 6228.
