We took Jemimah to an operatic performance of The Magic Flute recently. We studied this as part of our Mozart study last year and we all absolutely loved seeing it performed on stage. It was a real CM highlight!!

I'm yet to try a Symphony, but I'm sure that if she knew the music well enough she'd love one of them too!
