In Grimsby and Cleethorpes, Opera for All works with the Arts Development team and the Music and Performing Arts Service at North East Lincolnshire Council. Opera for All is part of a programme of local activity to provide opportunities for every young person in the area to develop through music and enjoy high quality musical experiences.

In 2015 and 2016, teams of artists worked with local primary and secondary schools, leading intensive series of residencies to introduce students to collaborative and creative theatre practice.  Screenings of Garsington Opera’s Cosi fan tutte and Eugene Onegin provided the opportunity for students to showcase their work to other local young people and to see the full operas which had inspired the residencies.

‘The participating schools have been buzzing since their experience as it had such a positive impact on everyone involved. Young people in this area are rarely exposed to intensive work with professional performers’  Sue Baker, NE Lincolnshire Music & Performing Arts Service
