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 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 trio of some of the best opera singers in the UK and
accompanied by a virtuosic pianist.
