The English Pocket Opera company came to visit our school on Monday 7th December.
They introduced opera to the pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2 in a fun and very entertaining way. The children learnt about the 3 main ingredients of opera (action, words and music) and how it is sung in many languages. The company presented the story of ‘A Midsummers Night Dream’ by William Shakespeare with the music of Henry Purcell.
Our year 6 children will be preparing some of the songs from this opera to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in March of next year.
