Year 2’s Performance with the Royal Opera House!

Today, Year 2 gathered with schools all across Newcastle at the Civic Centre to perform our own version of Mozart’s ‘The Magic Flute.’ We performed the songs we have been rehearsing, ‘Tamino’s Aria, ‘Walk on Tiptoe, ‘Hm Hm Hm,’ and ‘Papageno’s Aria.’ In addition, we also learnt ‘The Trials Begin,’ and ‘Pa Pa Pa,’ with the help of two professional opera singers from the Royal Opera House. We were also accompanied by a chamber orchestra from Music Partnership North which consisted of a cellist, a violinist and a flautist.
What an amazing opportunity with memories we will always cherish!
