Opera Cocktail
with OperaUpClose
Saturday 2nd December

We'll be kicking off the start of the festive season with a bit of a party event, so feel free to get the sparkly frocks out! With a Champagne Cocktail Bar and fun packed evening ahead, tickets are expected to sell quickly, so do be quick off the mark!

We are delighted to welcome OperaUpClose, an ambitious, Olivier Award-winning opera company, producing innovatively staged, accessible, affordable and - crucially - high quality English chamber re-imaginings of well-known works and premieres of new operas. They will be performing a selection of much loved opera favourites.

Classics shaken with wit, stirred with drama and served with a contemporary twist, 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.
