Opera event at school
Published on: 01 Apr 2015
CHILDREN at Bromley Heath Infant School became clog dancers, gingerbread men and angels as they took part in an opera event.
Local opera group Tessitoura worked with the Year 2 pupils on the dances before the performance of Hansel and Gretel, which members had adapted for a young audience.
Head teacher Tina Long said the children had been very excited to take part in a live show with real actors. She said that as well as enabling the children to experience a quality live musical performance, the visit had complemented the work the children had been doing on traditional tales by demonstrating a different way of telling the story.
“It was a wonderful performance and a great experience for the children, which I am sure they will remember for a very long time. Involving the Year 2 children added an extra dimension to the performance and provided an opportunity for them to be involved in live theatre,” she said.
