KS2 School Workshops – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

alice1nograsslowAlice’s Adventures in Wonderland is Opera Holland Park’s first original commission and its second family orientated show. The production is based on Lewis Carroll’s classic fantasy novel of the same name. Using a mix of musical styles – including jazz and blues alongside more lyrical classical music – the story plays out with bags of humour, big bold characters and a young heroine on a brave mission to help her new friend.

This workshop has been developed to provide year 5 pupils with a mechanism to enhance their music and drama curriculum in a vibrant, engaging and interactive way whilst introducing pupils to opera and a great literary classic. Participants should expect to sing, act and let their imaginations run wild.

The format of the workshops aims to:

  • Reveal – awake imaginations to a fantastical story.
  • Have emotional punch – contain great storytelling which connects with children.
  • Be about sharing and experiencing – pupils should join in actively, not be passively watching.
  • Provide heroes – give them characters and characteristics participants can aspire to such as bravery and humour.
