Year 8 Opera Day

Opera Day, March 2016

Year 8 classes were attending the opera workshop on Thursday 31st March. As ever, it was a real highlight in the music calendar and really reinforced the opera topic the Y8 girls have recently finished.

Habba, Al and Martyn are all consummate performers and proved again to be brilliant entertainers in true operatic fashion. The improvised recitative section in each of the 3 sessions were inspired – apologies to those Cheshire Wives’ fans P3! Morvyn in 8-5 did a brilliant job of improvising with them too.

‘Impromptu opera’ , as they are known, spend most of their time entertaining at special events – weddings and restaurants etc – we are their only school workshop – thanks to Amanda Wright who knows them personally and asks them to deliver it every year.
