Premiere Opportunity

September 07, 2016

Eighth Graders at the premiere of the Dream of the Red Chamber operaEighth graders had a spectacular opportunity to see the world premiere of an exicting new operatic production of a classic Chinese novel, Dream of the Red Chamber at San Francisco Opera.

As Head of School Jeff Bissell noted, “eighth graders’ field trip to the dress rehearsal of Hong lou meng was a real peak experience—Ms. Kennedy, Tang Laoshi and Mr. Ross prepared everyone expertly, the performance was grand, and the 8th grade students were an exemplary audience.”

Digital Chinese Initiative Manager Adam Ross and eighth grader Madison H. were interviewed about the opera by USA China Daily.

Carroll Family Learning Center Coordinator Cassy Lee shared some fun glimpses of eighth graders enjoying the evening on the school’s password protected SmugMug gallery.
