Youngsters are in fine voice
4:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in News
YOUNGSTERS from two Cotswold primary schools proved they were in fine voice when they took part in the Longborough Festival Opera.
Eight pupils at Longborough and Swell primary schools took part in the production of La Bohème last month.
Martin Graham, festival chairman and founder and former Longborough School pupil, also took each team of children on a personal tour around the opera house.
Max Pilcher, one of the eight who took part, said: “It’s really great fun. There are lots of amazing people who are very kind and encouraged you to do well.”
Thomas Fowler added: “I am thrilled to be in the Longborough opera because I like acting. I like being backstage with all of the professionals – it’s a once-ina- lifetime experience”.
Longborough Festival Opera, which finished on July 27, was the only British company to be celebrating the bicentenary of Wagner’s birth with a fully staged production.
