A VISIT FROM THE ENGLISH TOURING OPERA


In May, we were pleased to welcome the Olivier Award-winning company English Touring Opera (ETO) back to Sacred Heart High school, who performed their opera Paper and Tin to a packed auditorium of young people.


Based on the characters from Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Paper and Tin retells the story in a modern context, supporting the PSHCE curriculum by exploring themes of identity and gender, and especially promoting personal acceptance, curiosity and confidence.


In preparation for the performance, teachers from Sacred Heart High School’s Music Department visited and led singing workshops for Year 4 and Year 5 students respectively from English Martyrs Primary School and Sacred Heart Primary School.


The primary students then visited the High school to participate in English Touring Opera’s energetic and interactive performance, enthusiastically joining with members of our Junior Choir in with the songs and wearing their personalised ‘empathy glasses’ for the grand finale!


Bradley Travis, associate artist at ETO, said “It was a really special performance at Sacred Heart; the cast had an amazing time, and the young people were brilliant!”
