Our children’s guide to the dramatic storm in Britten's seafaring opera

‘Ten Pieces’ Special: Part 6 – Britten's 'Storm' from Peter Grimes

The BBC’s 'Ten Pieces' initiative aims to present the wonders and joys of classical music to primary school-aged children. Over the period of one school year, ten essential pieces will be brought to life through videos, activities and performances of the pieces themselves.

We have been joining in the fun with our special series introducing each of the ‘Ten Pieces' in turn.

Part 6, in the April issue of the magazine, presents 'Storm' from Britten’s opera Peter Grimes. Click on the button below to download our children’s guide and fun ‘Things to do!’ worksheet.
