Opera Australia Visits BGS
Prep to Year 2 BGS boys and Firbank girls were treated to an incursion by Opera Australia on Monday. The students embarked on a fabulous journey with the cantankerous cat and exuberant owl in the opera ‘By the Light of the Moon’. The work explores the tales of Edward Lear’s beloved rhyme ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’. The children were mesmerised by the beautiful sets and colourful costumes. They were also in awe of the singing, which included many well-known arias set to nursery-rhyme lyrics. A lovely morning of storytelling and music!
