In collaboration with Operasonic, Welsh National Opera Youth & Community Team will work with 40 young people aged 14 – 16 from John Frost School in Newport around the theme of ‘Deeds not Words’ – a popular suffragette slogan. The project will focus on what political activism means to young people in the here and now. They will produce a song cycle working with a writer, composer and director that will culminate in a performance of the piece at The Riverfront, Newport on 7 June 2018 prior to the performance by Welsh National Opera of Rhondda Rips It Up!
