We once again had another superb day with our friends from New Siblands Secondary School and the professionals from English Touring Opera. Tim Yealland, Education Director from English Touring Opera said 'It's like coming home to Marlwood!’ He was joined by composer Russell Hepplewhite and Cellist Rebecca Hepplewhite to create a beautiful story with music, dance and song. Our Year 10 Drama and Music students proved themselves to be both creative and kind in making students from New Siblands feel very welcome. This work follows our continued relationship with both New Siblands and English Touring Opera. We have created many other mini Operas and two large, week long Opera projects. We consider this to be a very special work for Marlwood, with us all benefiting from a world class opera company in this way. This time the theme was deeply thought provoking as we considered refugee children and their plights to escape from war torn countries.
Thank you and well done all for an excellent day.
