Y10 Performing Arts and The Royal Opera House

10th February 2023

In October of this academic year, 3 of our current Y10 BTEC Tech Performing Arts students were invited to work alongside industry professionals from The Royal Opera House in London. Since then, they have been hard at work, learning about the 6 stages of the design process as well as creating ideas for designs in either costume and set.

In this annual competition, the students have taken on a live brief, based around the opera, The Magic Flute (currently showcasing in London). They are now in the final stages of this work, which will accumulate in a portfolio of work, a finished artefact and a presentation outlining the various steps they have gone through. They have worked like trojans – experiencing the real-life highs and lows of working to a deadline as well as communicating a Directors Vision.
