A night at the opera

Some 14 members of the BGS Scholars' Programme attended Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Bristol Hippodrome this week.

This was the first opportunity for two years to attend such an event, and the Scholars, from Y7–Lower Sixth, were treated to an evening of great singing from Welsh National Opera and the thrill of a live orchestra.

Michael said:

‘I can’t quite believe how the singers do it, projecting over a full orchestra and acting at the same time.’

Kandara said:

‘It was a great evening and very emotional.’

Dr Massey said: ‘Having world-class performers on your doorstep is something we have learned not to take for granted. It was a pleasure to escort our young Scholars to this event and they really enjoyed it.’
