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 festive cocktail 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 singers accompanied by a virtuosic pianist and are woven together into a romantic comedy of errors – think Bridget Jones goes to the opera – which will surprise, delight and entertain.
