Macbeth at the Hackney Empire

15th March 2019

On Thursday 7 March, 16 of our students with their parents attended a performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera of the well - known tragedy Macbeth at the Hackney Empire. Ms Cross was able to reserve a number of seats for this amazing dress rehearsal performance.

It was a rare treat and was much appreciated by all who were able to attend. All of the students were really attentive, the music and singing were outstanding. Everyone was captivated by the vocal range and ability of Lady Macbeth and the strikingly stark staging, set mostly in a concrete bunker. For all the students who were unable to attend the performance Ms Cross is very hopeful that she will be able to arrange another Opera trip in the Autumn Term.
