Opera North The Child and the Magic Spells Family

Opera North The Child and the Magic Spells Family


This fun and interactive family workshop will be led by artists from Opera North who will introduce children to the magical world of Ravel's The Child and the Magic Spells, prior to the 45-minute matinee performance that afternoon in Leeds Grand Theatre.

Through drama, music and games, children and their accompanying adults will get a chance to find out more about the cast of unusual and intriguing characters, discover the magical storyline and learn some handy French words. There will also be the opportunity to have a go at singing some of Ravel’s amazing music. 

As well as being a fun and exciting way of getting to know The Child and the Magic Spells better, this workshop will also ensure that the opera can be enjoyed to its fullest by adults and children alike.  

Suitable for children from 7+
