English Touring Opera
Last Friday we welcomed back our friends the English Touring Opera who came in to perform their show ‘Different’.
‘Different’ is a brand new opera for SEND audiences created by Key Club (a group of young adults with high functioning autism or asperger’s syndrome), composer Llywelyn ap Myrddin, designer Ruth Paton, and director Tim Yealland. The opera is performed by singers Eleanor Ross, Jan Capinski and Maciek O’Shea, cellist Jon Kitchen and trumpeter Ruth Ross.
The students (and staff) thoroughly enjoyed the performance and were able to be part of the show, helping to look after puppies, think out loud and explore the wigwams – another really lovely afternoon, kindly funded by Friends of Victoria Education Centre.
