Scottish Opera is Scotland’s national opera company and the largest performing arts organisation in the country, creating and performing opera in theatres and community venues across Scotland, the UK and internationally.
They showcase the widest variety of opera: from the earliest operas of the 17th century, to world premieres from contemporary composers; from pieces for babies, to pieces for people living with dementia.
Scottish Opera delivers an annual Primary Schools Tour project that engages with 9,000 pupils from over 130 schools across Scotland every year. Around 90 pupils in each school (ages 8 to 12) work alongside three professional singers to learn and perform a 30 minute educational ‘opera in a day’.
The Scottish Opera team set a Creative Informatics Challenge Project to create an interactive experience to capture evaluative data from pupils and teachers on their Primary Schools Tour in a fun, engaging and accessible way.
