Class Act Opera - The Magic Flute

On Tuesday 5th August Class Act Opera came to Kelvin Road School to perform an opera called The Magic Flute. The whole school went to the hall for the opera and the children were so excited because it was their first opera. It was a musical show of acting and singing. We laughed a lot and everybody enjoyed the show.
Thank You Class Act Opera.

Magic and mystery join with quirky humour in Mozart's The Magic Flute. The romantic fairytale is popular with long-time opera-goers for its tunefulness and wit, and is a great 'first opera' for beginners.

The handsome Prince Tamino has fallen in love with an image of the beautiful Pamina. During his journey to find her, he encounters some mysterious characters: the Queen of the Night, some watchful guides, a lonely birdcatcher and the forbidding ruler Sarastro. Tamino's magic flute may help him, but his own strength will be the key.
