Attention all MUSIC, English, History, Politics, and Spanish teachers Coming after Easter! An exciting and educational competition for the summer and/or autumn term open to UK schools, colleges and universities. The University of Southampton invites students to compose and submit their own songs for ‘Fidel’ – a brand new musical about Fidel Castro and the Cuban revolution. Students can express their creativity while learning about the world’s longest standing political leader – Fidel Castro. Students will learn about the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban missile crisis as well as cult figures like the legendary Che Guevara. Cuba has a lot to teach us, from their vibrant music, dance and culture, to their historical and political role as a small island caught up in Cold War politics, as well as the ethical dilemmas of leadership
