La Vida Breve
Welham Boys’ School and The Neemrana Music Foundation, in collaboration with Embassy of Spain, Instituto Cervantes and Sardana Creative Consultancy presented La Vida Breve (Life is Short), an opera in two acts by Manuel de Falla with an original Spanish libretto by Carlos Fernández-Shaw.
This Spanish opera took place at the school’s iconic Theatron on Tuesday, April the 25th 2017.
Welham Boys’ School Principal Ms. Gunmeet Bindra stressed on the fact that “there is a need for children of today to be introduced and exposed to such forms of art. They learn to appreciate different emotions that music and lyrics bring out to help tell a story.”
The Neemrana Music Foundation’s philosophy in imparting musical education to children is to stimulate their interest in Western classical music and develop their awareness of culture. “Welham Boys’ School is an excellent place for the opera performance”, stated the foundation’s managing trustee Aude Priya Wacziarg.
