Years 3 and 4 were treated to a behind the scenes look at The Royal Opera house working on The Magic Flute. This rehearsal was designed to be accessible to children and to introduce the different roles of the director and performer. Children were encouraged to be a monster, a bird catcher, and to try some of the vocal warm up exercises that the opera singers used. At the end, there was an opportunity to ask questions, with Zac and Samuel both having their questions chosen to be answered by the performers.
To follow this activity, Mrs Sage will be leading a workshop on The Magic Flute after half term with Years 3 and 4, and more information on this will follow after the break.
