FOR many musically-minded people, performing at the Royal Albert Hall is a dream that seldom becomes a reality.

But it's something a group of Hatfield schoolchildren can already count among their list of achievements.

Pupils at The Ryde School, in Pleasant Rise, have just completed a stint performing as part of the chorus line for a production of Georges Bizet's classic opera Carmen.

The 12 pupils, aged between seven and 11, successfully auditioned to appear at the historic London venue, performing every other day between February 27 and March 8.
