The Elixir of Forgetfulness
On the 23rd February 2016 pupils from the academy performed at the Leeds Grand Theatre, with their own opera named ‘The Elixir of Forgetfulness’. The performance was watched by other students from the academy and pupils from other schools.
The project was developed by Opera North, who came to the academy over several weeks to provide workshops to give the pupils a wide range of performance skills. Details of which can be seen here.
After the performance, Opera North then performed Donizetti’s ‘The Elixir of Love’ to the students.
