Blackheath Halls Children's Opera

Opera for Children performed by Children

Since launching the Blackheath Halls Children's Opera project in 2013 we have presented 6 fully and professionally staged operas involving many 100s of local children. 

The aim of the project is to give children from all backgrounds the opportunity to participate in an opera. They are led by a fully professional team and get to perform alongside professional opera singers and musicians. Each production has been presented four times to a wide and varied family audience. Children performing are from a broad range of schools in the local area and the company also benefits from the involvement of students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance.

The Children's Opera has been supported over the years by local philanthropists, Trusts and Foundations, in particular The Hearn Foundation as well as Arts Council England, making these amazing productions possible for the community.

“I loved the bringing together of professionals and amateurs: adults and children: seasoned regulars and novices...I feel privileged that my daughter was a part of it.”
