Pop Up Opera returns to the Museum with The Barber of Seville in June

Experience opera like you’ve never seen before, as the Pop Up Opera company takes to the Thames Tunnel stage again with this incredibly fast-paced comical farce in an adaptation of this much loved score. Witness razor-sharp timing as the ever resourceful barber, Figaro, tries to help the young Count Almaviva win the hand of the beautiful Rosina, out of love rather than for his wealth. Soon the pair set about to produce many disguises for the count, and thus the farce ensues…! More information available here.

The opera’s most recent stint at the Museum in April was reviewed by Matthew Parris at The Times. See image below.
