Classics shaken with wit, stirred with drama and served with a contemporary twist
Olivier Award winning OperaUpClose present some of opera’s best loved arias, duets and ensembles in a fun, modern setting. Performed in witty new English translations and beautifully acted in the company’s engaging, intimate style, this evening includes Musetta’s aria from La Bohème, Carmen’s sexy Habanera, and the drinking song from La Traviata.
These popular tunes are performed by a quartet of some of the best opera singers in the UK and accompanied by a virtuosic pianist.
