Pop-Up Opera
A Mozart Double Bill

Bastien und Bastienne & Der Schauspieldirektor. Two delicious one act comedies in which a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other, and a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna. These brilliant gems showcase Mozart’s gorgeous music and sense of playfulness, the first written when he was just 12 years old and the second in the last 5 years of his life. Two lively and engaging stories that will sit either side of an interval.
