English Touring Opera performance of 'Shackleton's Cat'

Children from Years 2-6 enjoyed a stunning performance of 'Shackleton's Cat' by English Touring Opera on Friday 20th April.  It was wonderful to experience professional singers and musicians so close to us, and they really captured our attention and imagination with their storytelling.  The opera told the story of Shackleton's expedition to Antarctica aboard the ship 'Endurance', with 28 men, 69 dogs and one cat (named 'Mrs Chippy').  All 28 men made it back home eventually; sadly, the dogs did not, and nor did Mrs Chippy.  You can find out more about this piece via the link below:
