Musical and creative projects to take part in from home

During the lockdown, we’ve been busy creating projects and activities for you to take part in at home.

We provide weekly suggestions of a ‘classic’ and a ‘discovery’ opera or classical performance you can watch online: we recommend a production and provide some context and background so that whether you are an opera novice or committed fan, you will be able to get the most out of watching the production.
