Popup Opera Presents: Il Matrimonio Segreto (The Secret Marriage)
Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company which aims to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making intimate and engaging.
The company aims to reach those who are hesitant about opera, as well as dedicated opera lovers. Productions are fully staged but go beyond traditional theatres to a boat made of scrap metal, a restored Victorian poorhouse, a cylindrical shaft beneath the Thames, a cider barn, a winery and even 100 ft underground in candlelit caverns.
