Coppélia – a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls

Posted in dance, Drama, Music

We had a wonderful time in London at The Royal Opera House: ‘A classic returns to the Royal Ballet repertory with Ninette de Valois’ charming and funny Coppélia– a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’ delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole Company. Osbert Lancaster’s designs bring a colourful storybook world to life in this Christmas treat for the whole family.’

Read our comments to find out what we thought of the ballet.

We are busy writing reviews of the ballet and will share them on here once we have finished.

Do you know any other ballets?

Celebration trip

Posted in Computing, Music

We had a fantastic day in Exeter participating in a Celebration concert with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. We listened to different pieces of music, sang with the orchestra and learned lots of new facts about the composers-it was so much fun-thank you BSO.

Following the amazing concert we went in to Exeter to The Apple Store to learn more about how to code using Sphero Robots and make presentations using an app called ‘Clips’.

 

Here we are learning how to use ‘Clips’ and having lots of fun interviewing each other about the concert.
