Dallam do Dido and Aeneas!
After a trip to the Coronation Hall in Ulverston, to see the English Touring Opera’s production of Dido and Aeneas, we were delighted to welcome members of the English Touring Opera to the Perfoming Arts Faculty.
Students from Years 9-13 participated in a day-long workshop based on Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas which culminated in a 15 minute performance of their shortened version of the opera.
Students worked with members of the opera company to perform songs the opera as well as compose two songs based on their thoughts about the story line and characters. Five students were also lucky enough to work with a professional set designer to create props and a set for the final performance.
