All about the 2019 Opera Workshop

Each year, as part of the Sherborne Abbey Festival, we hold a Saturday morning workshop, primarily, but not exclusively, aimed at young people, where participants spend the morning working with professional musicians and then joining them in performance.

This year, we invite you to join three professional opera singers from Dorset Opera Festival for an inspiring and fun workshop for singers of all ages and abilities. The professionals, themselves experienced vocal animateurs, will put the workshop participants through their paces with a variety of styles and genres, incorporating technique, rhythm, movement and staging exercises.

The participants will also learn the famous ‘Drinking Song’ from La Traviata and perform it alongside the professionals at a free, outdoor-staged show: La Traviata – A Pocket Performance at Waitrose at 3pm.

  • The workshop is open to anyone over the age of eight years
  • It is not necessary to be able to read music
  • No costumes are required
