of York will be working with year 7 and 8 pupils from two Beverley secondary schools on a collaborative opera project based on Purcell's 'The Fairy Queen'.
Led by composer James Redwood, the students will be encouraged to explore themes from the 17th century work and Shakespeare's play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' upon
which the opera is based, in the composition of songs, dramaand movement as well as learning to sing some of the highlights of Mr Purcell's great work.
