Pop Up Opera’s Summer 2018 production is a Mozart double bill: Bastien & Bastienne and The Impresario.
Sit back and enjoy two delicious one-act comedies in which a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna, and a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other. These two lively and engaging stories showcase Mozart's gorgeous music and sense of playfulness, the first written in the last 5 years of his life and the second when he was just 12 years old! The production is directed by New British Music Theatre Award nominee, Anna Pool, critically acclaimed for her bold and fierily original directing style.
Performing in the stunning ballroom of Charlton Down’s Herrison Hall near Dorchester on Sunday 1 July, audiences can also enjoy refreshments from D’Urberville’s award-winning vineyard, and have the chance to win an overnight stay plus dinner and breakfast at La Fosse in Cranborne in a grand prize draw. Tickets for Pop Up Opera are available from 01305 269512 or online at www.artsreach.co.uk
