Friday 8 - 9 Jun 2018 Pop-Up Opera - Bastien & Bastienne and The Impresario

The Summer 2018 production is a Mozart double bill: Bastien & Bastienne and The Impresario – two delicious one act comedies in which a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other, and a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna. Both are brilliant fun pieces - Mozart is a popular composer and the music is gorgeous. The two pieces work very well together bringing two engaging stories that sit either side of the dinner interval.
