Schools can choose 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.
