Returning with a twist to their summer season, Pop-Up Opera will present a special Mozart
double bill with two entrancing one-act comedies showcasing Mozart’s inimitable style and sense
of playfulness. Each performance is skilfully adapted to its venue as Pop-Up take their operas into
unusual and unique spaces around the UK, making them fun, fresh and intimate.
This lively double bill allows for a closer study of Mozart’s oeuvre as it explores two works written
at very different times in Mozart’s life. The first opera Der Schauspieldirektor was written in the
last five years of his life whereas he composed Bastien und Bastienne when he was just twelve
These engaging operas bring together amazing vocal acrobatics alongside Pop-Up’s signature
‘silent movie’ captions to tell the story 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.
