The Bartered Bride

The Bartered Bride

Our Year 9 Music students attended a performance of Smetana’s The Bartered Bride in Leeds yesterday as part of their study of the Romantic period in lessons. The students took part in a workshop in the morning exploring musical themes, the plot and characters of the opera with acting out scenes and also singing Chorus numbers from the opera. The students then saw a full performance of the opera in front of a packed audience of school children. It was a fun, engaging and great learning experience for all concerned!
