Rumpelstiltskin – An Opera for Primary School.

Created with young people and schools in mind Rumpelstiltskin the opera, true to form, tells a story of magic, wily deception, careless lies, comedy, sorrow, self discovery and a crushing moral dilemma.

Rumpelstiltskin, composed by Helen Woods with libretto by Pete Talman, has been created and performed by Opera Boots.

This FREE resource is suitable for all ages at primary level. The project features 8 video chapters and supporting activities, both musical and cross-curricular to extend the learning in a fun way. There are even composers notes for each chapter, a timing schedule so you can  plan it around your timeline. Although the materials and content are perfect for primary classes, they can be adapted to suit younger years too.

Non specialist music teachers will find easily accessible approaches and ready to use video clips as well as ideas for cross curricular links and extension tasks. Each instalment of the story is accompanied by music warm ups and supporting materials to complement and extend the learning.
