Event Details

'..achieved its aim of making opera enjoyable and inviting, without diminishing the quality of the music.' Opera Magazine

'I honestly cannot imagine anyone, of any age or class or tastes, who would have been bored or unmoved' The Times

Exciting young opera company Pop-up Opera perform Donizetti’s side splittlingly comic opera Don Pasquale, in the underground Thames Tunnel Shaft at the Brunel Museum. Lit by candelight and with an amazing acoustic, the cylindrical shaft is an intimate and exciting setting for opera. Pop-up Opera’s brilliant and highly acclained production has been touring unconventional venues across the country, such as bars, barns and boats. Instead of a formal theatre environment, the intimate venue makes for a much more direct connection with the singers and the music, something even seasoned opera-goers often miss. Directed by Darren Royston, who has been praised for his dynamic use of movement in opera, the production is uniquely adapted to each venue. Unmissable.

Please be aware that in this unique and exciting venue there is a very low doorway and (sturdy) scaffold stairs. It is an underground venue, so please bring some warm clothing in case the temperature is cool.

 

Stage direction by Darren Royston

Musical direction by James Henshaw
