Acclaimed Opera Director Brings The Magic Flute to Life
On Friday 24th March the Music Department was delighted to host internationally acclaimed director Tom Guthrie and Jessica May from Longborough Festival Opera. The pair spoke to GCSE and A level music and drama students about Longborough's forthcoming production of Mozart's 'The Magic Flute', as well as participating in some workshop activities.
After some warm up games Tom explained what his job is as a director and how he intends to bring the story, which is essentially a fairy tale, to life. The students acted out some scenes from the opera and even tried their hands at puppeteering! It gave a fantastic insight into the role of an operatic director and whetted the appetite for our trip to Longborough in the summer.
