Sing with Operasonic!

Join our Opera Creators Family Choir and perform at Big Splash 2019.

Operasonic Composer Helen Woods is putting the finishing touches to our amazing new opera – BREAKING OUT OF THE BOX.

The opera has been written across the last two months during our May half term workshops and in schools sessions with Maindee Primary and Lliswerry High School. Designs have also been created by young people working with designer Ruth Stringer.

We are now forming a family choir to join our opera singer Dyfed Wyn Evans and perform the opera.  Come on your own, with your children, with your grandchildren, with your brother and sisters, or aunties and uncles. All ages are welcome to come and take part and it’s totally FREE!

If you want to take part, you must commit to the following:

Rehearsals at Maindee Library 

  • Saturday 13th July 1.30pm – 5.30pm
