Pop-Up Opera is back at Beacon Arts Centre this June!
Iolanthe is banished by the Fairy Queen for marrying a mortal. Now, 25 years later, two worlds again collide when her son announces he’s in love. Unfortunately, his beloved is a popular girl and he has some serious competition… Light-hearted G&S satire at its best, Iolanthe is full of fun.
Pop-up Opera is back on the road wit a bumper tour featuring three of Gilbert & Sullivans’ best-loved hits.
Experience all the drama and wonder of grand opera on a miniature scale, with open-air performances brought to life by a storyteller, two singers, instrumentalists – and a sumptuous set of specially created illustrations.
Immerse yourself in pint-sized versions of The Gondoliers, Iolanthe and The Mikado, which take you on an unforgettable journey through the operas’ musical and dramatic highlights – in just 30 minutes each. Packed with screwball humour, memorable characters, and of course brilliant tongue-twisting tunes, these mini operas are perfect for audiences of all ages.
Book now for performances on Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 June at 12 noon at www.beaconartscentre.co.uk
