Next year's performance is a brand new opera, written by composer Howard Moody and directed by Simon Iorio. The opera is brought to life by a multi-genre score and includes elements of classical, world and jazz music. The chorus of 80 local auditioned singers are an active, shaping force of the drama. The music is woven together and led by five professional soloists, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and local young musicians.

We are pleased to announce that Mandy and I will be working with schools in Sussex, Surrey and Kent on the new Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning Programme.
The new programme is managed by the British Council in partnership with the Department for International Development and supports schools internationally to learn about and collaborate on the big issues that shape our world.
Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning helps schools make connections locally and globally, encouraging schools in the UK to work together as clusters, or individually, to develop partnerships with schools in other countries and embed global learning in the classroom.
With access to grants, you can conduct reciprocal visits with partner schools in other countries, helping to strengthen existing international partnerships and build new connections around the world. If successful with a cluster grant application, you will also be eligible for training and supply cover while developing your skills in global learning.
One to one partnerships can apply for up to £3000 and Clusters of schools can apply for up to £35,000.
As Local Advisors for Kent, Surrey and Sussex we are available to help you with your grant application. This ranges from 1.5 hours if you are an individual school, to half a day if you are applying as a cluster lead school.
