The Magic Flute

We were very lucky this week to have the opportunity to take part in a workshop with Opera North. They came and taught us all about an opera called The Magic Flute. We started off the workshop by warming up our bodies and our voices. We had to concentrate really hard to pass the clap around the circle and make some very strange noises when warming up our voices. After we were warmed up we had to listen to pieces of music and act out how it made us feel. These pieces of music were then linked to the characters in the opera. We learnt about Pamina (the princess), Tamino (the prince), The Queen of the Night, Sarastro and Papageno. After that we learnt two songs. The children were amazing at the singing and acting. Here are some pictures of our workshop.
