With the premiere of Wensum Junior’s first ever opera fast approaching (Friday 28th April!) Sistema musicians, staff and children spending every minute outside of their morning maths lessons rehearsing, building, painting, sewing, stitching. Melodies are refined, lyrics adjusted, set designs finalised and props finished. They have genuinely been ‘working as artists’. Auditions took place on Thursday afternoon so the parts are allocated. Next week is rehearsal week, with a dress rehearsal for the school on Thursday ahead of the performance on Friday.
