Primary Schools Tour
Scottish Opera's annual Primary Schools Tour is one of our longest established and most popular education programmes with around 10,000 children accessing the performances each year.
Our Primary Schools Tour helps teachers all over Scotland deliver aspects of A Curriculum for Excellence. These children’s operas make learning exciting,
challenging and creative and allow pupils to participate in a high-quality, day-long music theatre workshop, ending with a performance for parents and guests.
Each school that participates in a Tour receives:
· High quality teaching resources, including a teaching pack and CD to help teach
and introduce the music and related activities.
· An advance visit from a specialist choral musician.
· A day-long workshop with a team of highly experienced arts education specialists
· A 30 minute performance for family, friends and schoolmates to share

The Legend of Slim McBride and The Lost Tribe
Music by Alan Penman
Lyrics by Allan Dunn
Join adventurer Slim McBride in an action-packed tale featuring the wonderful and exotic people, plants, birds and animals of the South American rainforests. Exploring the threats that the modern world can pose, children are encouraged to ask crucial questions about the future of these magnificent forests, the eco-system that depends on them, and why it is so important that they be protected.
A perfect springboard into a range of subjects for upper primary including Personal and Social Development, Citizenship, Geography and the Expressive Arts.
