ROH Create and Sing Carmen

Suzi was a lead artist on the Royal Opera House’s Create and Sing Carmen, which launched nationally in 2017.

Create and Sing Carmen is The Royal Opera House’s nationwide dramatic singing programme. It was developed by The Royal Opera House with artistic team Hazel Gould – writer and director, and Pete Letanka – composer, Suzi Zumpe – vocal director.

There are different levels of engagement with the programme ranging from a two lesson taster, to an immersive 10 lesson plan. The project is aimed at children in primary schools and equips teachers with the skills and resources to create their own class performance inspired by the music and story of Bizet’s opera, Carmen.  The immersive programme comprises weekly films, lesson plans, specially arranged material and backing tracks. All resources are available on the Royal Opera House’s website and this is a free resource available to all.
