On Friday 1st November, a group of 10 students
attended a performance of Bizet's Carmen at Publika Black Box.
tells a dramatic story of a vibrant Spanish woman's search for love, and we
were all thoroughly drawn into the story at this performance. Thankfully
there was a simultaneous translation from the French above the stage, so
everyone was clear what was being said! (The composer was French, hence
the language - despite the Spanish setting).
It was great that two of
our own students participated in the performance - Shuewen Tay from Year 7 was
in the children's cast and Andrew Ng (Year 13) was none other than the
concertmaster. Shuewen and Andrew did us extremely proud with their
musicianship and professionalism. Congratulations to them for their
dedication - participating in an exhausting rehearsal schedule at the same time
as coping with their studies, and for being part of this superb show!
