Bailey Choir students went to see Verdi's "Rigoletto" at the Long Center and had fabulous time! We are so proud of how well they represented Bailey. The show was fabulous. It had all the elements you could ever want in a performance: humor, love, scandal, murder... DRAMA! The voices, costumes, set.... everything is fantastic! It was sung in Italian with an English translation shown on a screen above the show.
We appreciate everyone who attended, volunteered, donated and helped make a really fun night for our kids! So many parents, teachers, coaches, custodians, and administrators, along with Manchaca Fire & Rescue and our supportive surrounding community put in some long hours before, during and after. Thank you!
