PRIMARY, SECONDARY, POST-16 & SEN OFFERS English Touring Opera Project Name Paradise Planet About the Project English Touring Opera (ETO) is the leading touring opera company in the UK. ETO travels to more regions and venues than any other English opera company. Their work includes commissioned opera pieces especially for young people. The English Touring Opera will be coming to Thameside Theatre in June for a performance of Paradise Planet. Paradise Planet is a celebration of the natural world that puts children at the heart of stories about the environment. As they embark on this mind-bending voyage around the world, the children get to choose where they go next - the North Pole? The Amazon rainforest? Under the sea? It is up to them. As the children discover some of the most amazing animals on the planet, they soon find that things aren’t necessarily as they might seem. The animals are in danger and it’s up to the children to save them. This interactive performance uses song, live musicians and sound-design wizardry to show the children that they have the power to change the world. The curriculum-linked piece draws from the KS2 Science syllabus on Living Things including classifying and naming animals, food chains, changing natural environments, human impact, conservation, and working scientifically. The story features 7 performers, including singers and players, and explores themes of, fauna, nature, environment, science and geography. The opera features an ingenious set, interactive songs, and comprehensive resources for teachers, with a Q&A after the performance. Suitability Suitable for KS2, year 7 and SEN. Dates, Location & Format On Wednesday 5 June 2018, the performance will run at Thameside Theatre, Grays. The duration of the performance, without interval, is 60 minutes. 23
