Design Challenge 2017/18
The Royal Opera House is now recruiting for schools and colleges to take part in Design Challenge 2017/18, which is based on Strauss’s opera Salomé and starts in September 2017.
The Royal Opera House’s prestigious annual Design Challenge competition gives students the opportunity to test and develop design skills, based around an opera or ballet production. The competition is open to all UK FE colleges and sixth form schools or colleges. Each participating student will work through the six stages of design using a real director’s brief, building a portfolio of their process and a final piece in one of the four categories:
Teachers will be supported by the Royal Opera House throughout the process and at our free CPD days.
Winners will also be invited to see a matinee performance at the Royal Opera House in half term, including a backstage tour and some time with the industry professionals in the relevant ROH department on Friday 16th February.
To take part in or to find out more about next year’s competition, please email Design.Challenge@roh.org.uk or call 01708 891 200.
Design Challenge receives generous philanthropic support from the Paul Hamlyn Education Fund and The Mohn Westlake Foundation.
