LSO St Luke's
LSO In Wartime: Create an Opera in a Day
On Saturday 1 November 2014, LSO Discovery will run a day-long project for families with children aged 8–11, at LSO St Luke's.
Inspired by Sally Beamish’s commemorative commission Equal Voices, which has its world premiere from the LSO and Gianandrea Noseda at the Barbican the following night, the project will take World War I as its theme and explore, via the medium of music, aspects such as London in war-time and what happened to the LSO (founded in 1904) and its musicians during the First World War.
Families will move around LSO St Luke's, gathering stories, meeting LSO players and working with workshop leaders towards creating a mini-opera for everyone to perform together at the end of the day.
