Discover the world of opera through fun participatory workshops for children and adults, full of singing, music and stories. Opera Dots is a music programme for under 5s, giving children and adults the chance to explore opera and music. No experience needed, just enthusiasm!

Please note that this is a participatory workshop. Please select the most appropriate age group, wear loose, comfortable clothing and leave buggies in the buggy park provided. A member of staff will be at hand to assist. There is unreserved seating available.

Please arrive before the start of each session, as latecomers will not be admitted.

Maximum permitted is two adults and four children per booking. Children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the session. If booking for just one child, only one adult may join the workshop. This is due to limited capacity for each workshop and we wish to enable as many children as possible to enjoy Opera Dots. Adults may only attend if accompanying a child.

Available in English.
