Opera Revised - Madam Butterfly Spring 2011

OR MB Main
Presented by:
Sponsored by:

Opera Revised – Madam Butterfly is a project developed by the Royal Albert Hall which links Secondary School classes from across Lincolnshire and London to collaborate on creating a movie pitch of their own version of Madam Butterfly. During the project, classes will be linked online to learn about each other, the opera Madame Butterfly and how to create a movie pitch. They will be mentored online by professional film maker Rikki Beadle-Blair. Each group will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to a panel of professionals, with the winning pitch being made by Rikki Beadle-Blair into a short film. After the pitch, all participating students will have the opportunity of seeing Raymond Gubbay’s stunning production of Madam Butterfly at the Royal Albert Hall.

The finished film will be available to see online - check back later in the year to see more!
