Grade 1/2 students were very excited to join the rest of the school in welcoming Opera Australia for the Barber of Seville performance. During our Italian rotations we spoke about the story, setting and main characters of the opera. We also learned about some of the voices and musical terminology found in opera and how language can be used with music. We had lots of questions for the performers after the show. We found out that opera singers train for years and years and need to practice special singing techniques to make sure they look after their voices.
