Behind the scenes at the opera!

A group of students and teachers were invited to visit the Euskalduna opera house this evening and we were given a guided tour of the dressing rooms, the backstage areas and the dress rehearsal of the opera that opens on Friday; "Tristan und Isolde" by Richard Wagner. We were lucky enough to see the last half climactic hour, the famous death scene that is the high point of the opera. Thanks Marta for arranging it. In November we can do it again! this time for "Romeo and Juliet" You are welcome to join us.
