PAULSGROVE students were treated to a performance of the ballet Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The lucky group of 13 to 15-year-olds from King Richard School travelled to London to experience Sergei Prokofiev’s masterpiece – commonly recognised as the soundtrack to The Apprentice TV show.

Lauren Coles, 13, said: ‘Romeo and Juliet was breathtaking.

‘It was an amazing experience and I’d love to meet the dancers again.’

Chantel Turner, who turned 14 today, said: ‘It was an amazing experience and the ballet dancers were very skilled and they made us want to do the ballet.

‘We met three of the dancers and were given the opportunity to ask them questions after the show.’
