Story

The Music for Youth Proms showcase the extraordinary talent from thousands of the UK's young musicians, creating an unforgettable experience for the groups performing and the audience.

Building on our existing partnership with the Norfolk Music Hub on the Norfolk Schools Opera Project, we are putting together a massed performance of A Kind of Magic Flute. 600 Key Stage 2 children taking part in the Norfolk Schools Opera Project will be joined by other children and young people at the Massed Ensemble and perform selected highlights of the brand-new opera on the 13th November at the Royal Albert Hall.

Accompanying a choir of children from across the County will be an orchestra made up of talented young musicians from Norfolk Music Service ensembles, including the Norfolk County Symphonic Wind Band, who celebrated success at the Music for Youth Prom in 2017.

A donation of £25 will pay for one child to travel to the Royal Albert Hall, a donation of £750 will pay for a whole class to travel.

What is the Norfolk Schools Opera Project?

It is a project for Key Stage 2 pupils across Norfolk in which pupils create and perform their own opera alongside professional artists at Norwich Theatre Royal. 600 Norfolk pupils will come together to tell this fantastical story of magic, conflict and the power of love.

A Kind of Magic Flute is a brand-new children's opera fusing Mozarts Magic Flute with a little twist of Latin-American Salsa music. The score weaves together extracts from Mozarts original opera, arrangements and adaptations of some of the operas most famous melodies and sections in which fragments and motifs from the original score are woven into entirely new music. Jonny Gee, Jonathan Preiss & Ellie Bowers-Jolley have worked together as a creative team to produce the new children's opera.

An excellent platform for the children's creative and cultural development
