And among them was six-year-old Neve Haddock, who took the part of Sorrow, the child of the lead character Cio-Cio-san.

Centre director Ruth McKechnie said: “The students always love their experiences getting involved with these operas. It’s a great opportunity for them to see what it’s like working with a professional cast and the evening is great fun too.

“They all behaved very professionally, improvising their parts with just a little rehearsal beforehand.

“And I was amazed at how well little Neve took on her role so confidently - we weren’t sure she would be able to stay awake. Her parents and I were very proud.”
