BORKA – An Opera for Young People and Families – 5 July 2023
Wednesday, July 5, 2023
This unique experience will bring the Borka Opera directly in to your school with live performances, workshops and a 45 minute show! Ignite Music will spend the whole day in your school giving an immersive experience to your pupils, having developed this beautiful story of a goose, born on the marshes of East Anglia, into an opera. The day will be tailored to your needs.
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.
It is suitable for Key Stage 1 pupils.
