Pop-Up Opera in South Molton 30.6.18

Pop-Up Opera in South Molton 30.6.18


Pop-Up Opera are coming to South Molton on Saturday, 30th June 2018 with their new Mozart Double Bill: Der Schauspieldirektor & Bastien und Bastienne. The production will be directed by New British Music Theatre Award nominee, Anna Pool, critically acclaimed for her bold and fierily original directing style.

Sit back and enjoy two delicious one-act comedies in which a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna, and a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other. These brilliant gems showcase Mozart’s gorgeous music and sense of playfulness, the first written in the last 5 years of his life and the second when he was just 12 years old! Two lively and engaging stories to delight you either side of an interval.

This is what the critics have said about previous performances from Pop-Up Opera: 

"FIVE stars for an opera with no orchestra, very little design and no big stars itself? Yes; five stars" - Daily Express

"I honestly cannot imagine anyone, of any age or class or tastes, who would have been bored or unmoved" - The Times

“Opera with a difference”; “making opera enjoyable and inviting”; “a vivid and zippy show”; “sheer exuberance”; beautiful noise” – and last but not least, “whether you love opera, or you’ve never been to one, be sure to catch this”.
