A Visit to the Opera!

On Wednesday, we went on our first trip to see an opera with the Royds Hall Theatre-Goers Club. The opera was Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. It was a stunning retelling of the fairy story in operatic form but was also very modern in using really creative staging and audiovisual effects. On stage at the Lowry Theatre in Manchester, Opera North's version was captivating. 

"It was different from the usual trips as there was a live orchestra and it was amazing to see all the instruments that are used to control the atmosphere of the opera," explained Hannah from Year 11.
