A wonderful day at the opera!

Children and adults alike thoroughly enjoyed the amazing experience of seeing a performance of Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London. Pupils in Year 5 along with our gifted and talented instrumentalists and singers from other classes were enthralled by the wonderful music, costumes and staging. Comments from the children included:

 "I wish I could go to the opera every day!" 

 "Wow! It was awesome; I loved it!"

"Everyone should go to see the opera; it was fantastic!"

Both before and after the visit to the Royal Opera House the children used the story of "The Marriage of Figaro" as the focus of their English lessons, learning about the characters and  the plot, and writing their own reviews of the show. The children's high quality writing suggests that there are some theatre critics in the making!
