BORKA – An opera for young people

Join us for a 45 minute opera for KS1, telling the story of Borka – the goose with no feathers. Available in person, online, or in school!

Experiencing live theatre engages children’s imaginations and encourages their creativity. It exposes them to different art forms and cultural perspectives, broadening their horizons and fostering empathy and understanding. By attending live theatre, children develop a greater appreciation for the arts and cultural diversity, increasing their cultural capital and enriching their lives.

Ignite Music have developed this beautiful story of a goose born on the marshes of East Anglia into a 45 minute family opera for you and your pupils to watch live in the comfort of your own school!

The opera will include puppets, an immersive auditorium dressed to create the Norfolk marshes and blur the line between stage and audience. It is firmly aimed at young people and families introducing the audience to opera in a friendly way with musical performance, puppetry and animated background.

Borka is the story of a goose born with no feathers who feels different from her many brothers and sisters. Unable to find a place where she is accepted, she meets two new friends on their boat heading towards London and finally a home in Kew Gardens. It is a story about inclusivity and being accepted.

This Opera is designed for KS1 pupils and we are currently offering three options for your school to book, including: in person, in school and a live stream.
