Benenden Church of England Primary School

English National Opera

What an amazing opportunity for Kingfisher Class! Over a two week period they attended a workshop at Benenden Girls School which was run by the English National Opera. 

After learning a song from the Marriage of Figaro and trying on Operatic costumes, they performed the final piece alongside a number of other schools in front of their parents.

The children were so happy that they were still singing the song on the minibus journey back to school. Thank you to Benenden Girls School for being wonderful hosts and to the English National Opera for opening our eyes to a different genre of music.
