Aberdeen Performing Arts in association with Mahogany Opera
The culmination of our Snappy Operas schools engagement project, showcasing performances from pupils of Hanover Street School, Gilcomstoun School, Riverbank School & Westpark School.
Snappy Operas is Mahogany Opera’s award-winning schools programme, making and performing new mini-operas with primary-aged children. Introduced to all the essential elements of opera – singing, acting and making – in a fun, colourful and bite-size chunk, pupils from across Aberdeen have been working with our team of professional artists since April to stage their ten minute pieces.
