Huge congratulations to Axl in year 8 who has recently performed in the highly acclaimed ‘Jenufa’ at the Royal Opera House.

Axl was selected for the opera two years ago when he was in year 6, however due to the National lockdown the show got postponed. He and all the cast have worked hard to rehearse over recent months and he was elated to be back on stage. On the Saturday night, Axl had an additional solo role on stage which he performed with confidence and grace. The opera has a star cast, as well as Hungarian conductor, Henrik Nánási, conducting a stunning score infused with traditional folk melodies of Janáček’s native Moravia.
