It's All Academic Festival: Impropera Presents Muso
Sat 10 June 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Night has fallen on the Grant Museum of Zoology, the doors are closed and the museum staff have gone home, but something is stirring. The bats wings are twitching and the pickled moles are uncurling because the world's only improvising opera troupe, Impropera, have snuck in at twilight to sing the specimens to life.
Immerse yourself amongst the animals, hear from an expert and then enjoy musical performances made up on the spot about your discoveries from the countless species of insect, fish, birds and beasts on display. No score, no story and no safety net. What is performed is up to you. The musicians are ready. A curator is on hand with expert perspective.
All we need is you – the audience – to come and get curious.
Entry is subject to museum capacity. We do over-issue tickets by a small percentage to compensate for no-shows. Places are allocated on a first-come first-served basis so please arrive early to ensure you find a seat.
