How you get kids interested in opera? That was the question asked by the ABC's 7.30 crew, filming a segment on the Opera Australia Schools Touring Company at Mayfield Primary School.
Singers Ruth Strutt, Giuseppina Grech, Shoumendu Shornikow and Andrew Moran were interviewed about their roles in the show and their enthusiasm for performing with the Schools Company.
"I was born to be ridiculous and wear ridiculous clothes!", Ruth said of her passion for theatre and performance.
"I remember the Oz Opera shows coming to my school and thinking, 'That would be the best job!'"
