Opera Up Close – Music Oft Hath Such Charm

Saturday 30th July 2016

  • Description
Shakespeare in Love, in Lust, in Loathing, in Laughter…and all in Music.
These bite-sized jewels of music theatre are performed by a quartet of singers accompanied by a virtuosic pianist, in scenes of romance, comedy and drama which will surprise, delight and entertain.
The Olivier award-winning OperaUpClose mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with a light-hearted performance of songs, operatic arias and ensembles inspired by his plays and poetry, performed in the company’s engaging, intimate and theatrical style.
Spectacular show-stoppers from Verdi’s Macbeth and the quick-witted wordplay of Much Ado About Nothing and Falstaff rub shoulders with well-loved songs like Schubert’s Who is Sylvia? and lesser known operas inspired by the Bard.
It’s the morning after a party and playboy Benedict has made another conquest. A mysterious woman called Sylvia has given him her number. While a heartbroken Beatrice despairs at Benedict’s womanising, Sylvia’s fiancé Demetrius overhears of the affair. Will these love triangles resolve themselves or will heartbreak and jealousy drive them to folly?
Children under 16 go free with a paying adult. To book please call 01334 475000. (One free child with every paying adult).
