It might not be an art form that is typically associated with children.
But youngsters at Wensum Junior School have proved that opera is for everyone, after writing and performing their very own show.
Lost in Time was made as part of Circus 250, the national celebration of 250 years of circus productions in the country.
It tells the tale of an evil ringmaster, who traps people in his circus until they perfect their act.
The show was written by year five pupils - nine and 10-year-olds - including the script.

The group, who worked with charity Sistema to produce the opera, then also provided the props, created the advertising and, of course, performed the show on stage.
On Wednesday, they showed off their hard work to parents and members of the community during two performances.
