1st December 2017
On Wednesday 29th November, we took 41 students from Year 9 and 10 up to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, to experience what for many (including myself) was their first taste of opera.
The performance included 2 different operas, Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci, both were tragic tales of love and betrayal set in the same village. Fortunately, as both performances were in Italian, there was subtitles throughout, helping us understand what was going on!
The students were impeccably behaved, and all those who I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
