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 handpicked from the company’s critically acclaimed, new English versions of popular works. Performed in witty new English translations and beautifully acted in the OperaUpClose’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 some of the best opera singers in the UK and accompanied by a virtuosic pianist.
