The Marriage of Figaro A-Level Workshop - W A Mozart

On Friday 27th April 2018 we are running a *free* educational workshop alongside our
semi-staged production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, a set work for the AQA A
Level syllabus. The workshop will be led by renowned musicologist and author Nigel
Simeone who frequently delivers pre and post show talks at The Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden and can often be heard on BBC Radio 4 as a commentator and expert
musicologist for the programme ‘Tales from the Stave’. Praised for his engaging style
and charismatic delivery we feel Nigel is the perfect choice to lead the afternoon. The
talk is being tailored to suit the needs of the AQA A Level set works to further the
students’ knowledge of the pieces they will be asked about in their upcoming exams.

There will be an opportunity for students to ask questions to not only Nigel Simeone but also our professional cast of singers who will provide live musical examples for the students. The roles explored in the workshop will include Figaro, Susanna, The Count, Dr Bartolo, Cherubino, Marcelina and Basilio and will be accompanied by a pianist.

The workshop will finish with a large scale activity.

The session will run from 2:00 - 4:45pm including a short break. Doors will open at 1:30pm

The workshop is free when student's purchase a £15 ticket for the evening performance.
