Year 10 and Tosca at Royal Opera House
Harris Boys’ and Harris Girls’ East Dulwich joined forces last week and descended upon The Royal Opera House for a matinee performance of Puccini’s Tosca. The Harris Federation were out in full force, represented by the students on the Harris Experience Programme.
Pictured at the Royal Opera House are (from left to right): Mr Butler, Theodore, Tomo, Jordan, Jeremiah, Mark, Filip and Cameron.
Tosca is a tale of love, jealousy, hatred, lust and murder, that features a small, close-knit group of exceptionally talented acting singers, accompanied by a 30-piece orchestra that performed live throughout.
The tale is told in Italian, with subtitles, and the sheer noise and atmosphere inside the Royal Opera House will be long remembered by everyone who attended.
It was wonderful to see so many students in complete awe and silence throughout the performance, proceeded by the uproar of applause after the final act.
“I didn’t know what to expect, but I really enjoyed it!', said Tomo, Year 10. "It was a great experience and I am thankful of the opportunity."
The students were absolutely outstanding in their manners and were a pleasure to accompany on such a wonderful event.
