The Floodgates

The Floodgates

The Story Wrangler needs your help. An old tale is coming back to life – but is it good or bad. She’s got some great equipment and knows how to sing some of the characters tales, but can she stop the floodgates from opening?

Operasonic is developing our very first production – The Floodgates. We wanted to make sure the story we are going to tell is something that young people really want to hear, so we asked Pillgwennly Primary school to help us write it. We worked with pupils in July 2015 to come up some ideas and start to construct the story.
