SOLD OUT How grim were the Grimms?: An Opera in a Day Workshop

Loading Events

Join Oxford Opera at MOX on a fantastical journey through the timeless, magical and often very grim tales of the Brothers’ Grimm! We will explore the characters they created, who have also appeared in operas, through a series of creative challenges, musical sessions and drama games to finally decide who was the grimmest of the Grimm characters? You will be led through the day by Oxford Opera’s inspirational team of theatre creators and music professionals, to end the day presenting a unique piece of theatre, which you have created, in an informal sharing to your family. The day will be a great opportunity to make new friends, explore a new art form or learn more about one you already love and create a theatrical piece in a day! Come along to have fun, express yourself and most importantly decide How grim were the Grimms?

Parents – please join us at 4.15 pm for a sharing of what has been created before pick-up at 4.30 pm.

This workshop is suitable for children aged between 8 and 12.

Please make sure your child brings a packed lunch and a drink as there are no facilities on site. In consideration for those who may have severe allergies, please ensure you do not pack products containing nuts, thank you.
