Opera comes to Osborne

| 1 Comment

On Tuesday, Little Ossies, along with the rest of the school were treated to a special performance of Cinderella by Opera Australia.

We started by heading over to the gym to join other grade levels. When we arrived at the gym we saw a ‘set/backdrop’ where there were windows and doors painted on big pieces of wood.

The performance began with person playing Cinderella coming and getting ready to be Cinderella by dressing up in her clothes on stage.

The person who played the role of Cinderella started by getting dressed up from a big treasure chest of costumes.

There were 4 performers and we found some of the actions which they did very funny.

The person who played one of the Ugly Step Sisters pretended they were a moustache for the Prince. We laughed a lot when the moustache kept moving when the Prince stopped!

The performers all sang beautifully to live music played on the piano.

We thought that the performance was very special to see. When we got back to our classroom we got out our own box of dress ups and borrowed some from the music room to do some performances of our own.

We started with the story “There was a Princess Long Ago”.

We had people who were dressed up as a princess and a wicked fairy.

We also thought that it would be fun to tell stories using singing instead of speaking, so Miss Griffiths and the Little Ossies spent a lot of the day singing opera too!

We wonder what stories and performances will happen next in the Little Ossies class?
