Study score to Britten's opera for children, The Little Sweep. This opera is the final section of the entertainment for young people called Let's Make an Opera. The first section of this is in the form of a play and illustrates the preparation and rehearsal of an opera. The accompaniment is for solo string quartet, piano-duet (four hands on one piano) and percussion (one player can manage). Some of the songs are to be sung by the whole audience under the direction of the conductor. They must, of course, be rehearsed beforehand and allowance is made for such rehearsal in Part One of Let's Make an Opera.
