Music students were treated to the rarely-performed production of Dame Ethel Smyth’s ‘The Wreckers’



It was off to the opera at Glyndebourne this week for three lucky music students to see the rarely-performed production of Dame Ethel Smyth’s ‘The Wreckers’.

The early 20th century opera, sung in French, tells the story of Cornish villagers luring ships onto the jagged rocks to plunder the wrecks. 



Jenni Hawkins, Head of Academic Music, accompanied Didi Cardwell, Tom Francis and Lauren Goldsmith to the world famous venue near Lewes in East Sussex. She said: “It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to take the students to Glyndebourne to see ‘The Wreckers’. The gardens were glorious, the picnic delicious, the music was stunning and even the weather behaved itself! We feel very lucky to have been able to have this experience and will remember this for a very long time!”



And the cherry on the cake was their picnic, it was especially created for the occasion by Cavill Perrin, Executive Chef at Seaford College.
