The Magic Flute Opera Trip
Recently, Year 8 went to the Lowry to watch the opera of The Magic Flute. This was a very exciting experience and Year 8 were lucky to have it as this was the first time the opera was put on in Manchester.
This ties in with their topic right now as well as Year 8 are studying the feature of an opera and, more specifically, The Magic Flute! The opera is based on two musical instruments which keep Prince Tamino and his bird-catching aid Papageno safe. They battle through Sarastro’s trials and the Queen of the Night’s evil schemes to get to true love and friendship.
The performance at the theater showed them a different interpretation of the opera’s unique story and was extremely humorous. Year 8 thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
