On Tuesday, Year 5 were visited by the English Touring Opera who performed a show written specially for children, called Paradise Planet. The opera is about the history of the planet Earth, from the Big Bang to today, focusing on the evolution of life on our planet.
We heard songs about polar bears, blue whales, shoals of fish and sea turtles. The performance was very entertaining and included: puppets, props, live musicians and even audience participation! Afterwards, we were able to ask the cast questions and learnt a lot about opera singing.
