At the Ballet
On Wednesday 2nd October 2019, 28 dance students from years 9 and 11 visited the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, to attend the school matinee performance of Manon, a very emotive ballet, recounting the story of a fateful romance. Our students were able to watch the performance a day before paying public and were very impressed that the dancers performed for nearly 3 hours without a break. The ballet was absorbing and some students and teachers even got teary-eyed when Manon finally met her fate at the end of the ballet.
This is Heston’s second year of visiting the school matinee performance and we cannot wait to go again next year!
