Tis the season to be jolly!
Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la, la la la, la la la. Troll the ancient Yule tide carol, Fa la la la la, la la la la.
So many exciting things happening in the Opera Anywhere camp this Christmas, we can’t help ourselves but revive our Amahl & The Night Visitors – 4 performances during the last 2 weeks in December, a very strong line up which will include our new recruits to the cast: Catrin Lewis, Suzi Saperia, Miles Horner and Ed Mansfield.
This Christmas we’ve decided to present 2 other short comic opera’s in addition to our Amahl production. We stumbled across an hilarious 9 minute opera by Barber with words by Menotti, ‘A Hand Of Cards’, we’ve produced a new production of Menotti’s ‘The Telephone’, set in the 1950/1960’s which features a 1940’s telephone and a 1960’s Vacuum cleaner! .. so in under 2 hours our audiences will be able to enjoy 3 great opera’s, 2 funny hilarious and 1 funny but very moving and great for kids!
Just after Christmas, our jolly Mikado AND our Pirates productions don their gay apparel at the intimate gorgeous Players Theatre in Thame.. tickets are going to be scarce for this so don’t delay, book in for a great post-Christmas treat!
In February, we have been commissioned by the composer John Whittaker to produce his new opera based on a Thomas Hardy story ‘The 3 Wayfarers’ – we’ll be performing a workshop performance on the 21st February at the suitably atmospheric Unicorn Theatre in Abingdon, we’ve only got 20 or so tickets left and these must go to our sponsors, so if you can spare £40 to help us make this happen, book a ticket here, now!
