Pop-Up Opera - Mozart Double Bill: Bastien und Bastienne & The Impresario

After last year's sell-out show, Pop-Up Opera return to Dorset this summer with a sparkling new double-bill

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.

Pop-up Opera is an innovative female-run touring opera company dedicated to making opera enjoyable and inviting, without losing the quality of musical performance. They aim to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making it fun, fresh and intimate.

These two lively and engaging stories 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! The production will be directed by New British Music Theatre Award nominee, Anna Pool, critically acclaimed for her bold and fierily original directing style. In Dorset for one night only, don't miss the opportunity to see this outstanding company live!

"Absolutely hilarious, whether you're an opera-sceptic or a die-hard fanatic. Boring simply isn't in this company's vocabulary. I left happy and satisfied, with my only complaint that my cheeks were sore from grinning so much. Check it out!"
