“An experience of opera that could hardly be more up close and personal.”
Opera Now, 2017

Pop-up Opera is back on the road in 2020 with three brilliant shows for all ages. Brought to life by a storyteller, singers, musicians and a set of colourful illustrations, each of the 25-minute long shows is an opera in miniature, performed within a specially-adapted, fully-accessible opera house on wheels!

A Little Bit of Figaro

Taking place over the course of one hectic day, Mozart's irresistible opera The Marriage of Figaro tells the tale of a serving girl (Susanna), her cheeky fiancé (Figaro), and their employer, Count Almaviva - who will stop at nothing to make Figaro and Susanna's big day end in disaster.

Song of the Clyde

Join us on a journey over 100 miles long as we trace the history of Scotland’s most famous river. From ancient times to the present day; from its beginnings high in the hills of South Lanarkshire down through the Clyde Valley to Glasgow and beyond; it has collected centuries of stories as it has flowed along...
 
MUSIC: Karen MacIver

A Little Bit of Gondoliers

Two gorgeous gondoliers, dozens of determined girls and the lost heir to the kingdom of Barataria – not to mention a Duke who’s floated himself on the stock exchange - and you have all the ingredients for one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s wittiest satires.
