L’enfant et les Sortilèges

Opera Mint is currently engaged in a film version of Ravel’s masterpiece (in English), set to a film with animated images by members of the cast and school students, some with special difficulties.

This will be a collaboration between superb professional musicians and singers, and our own local members, with Music Director Andrew Wilson Dickson, and a film made by Dominic Shakeshaft.

This story, of a child who loses his temper and creates chaos, is a superb comment on the human condiition. We plan to take it around school audiences and encourage an inter-active element!
