Recently The Opera Initiative and Royal Swedish Opera invited a number of young pupils from the School of Music in the municipality of Flen to the final rehearsal of The Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House. The Opera Initiative sponsored the transport and lunch for the group. Three buses filled with enthusiastic pupils arrived in Stockholm and they all embraced their first experience of proper ballet with total joy.
After the second act the lobby of the traditional, 19C Opera House was brimming with energy, some pupils even danced and did somersaults in the air.
