Pop-up Opera is back on the road with a bumper tour featuring four of Gilbert & Sullivans' best-loved hits.
Experience all the drama and wonder of grand opera on a miniature scale, with open-air performances brought to life by a storyteller, two singers, instrumentalists – and a sumptuous set of specially created illustrations.
Immerse yourself in pint-sized versions of The Pirates of Penzance, HMS Pinafore, The Gondoliers and The Mikado – taking you on an unforgettable journey through the operas’ musical and dramatic highlights – in just 30 minutes each. Packed with screwball humour, memorable characters, and of course brilliant tongue-twisting tunes, these mini operas are perfect for audiences of all ages.
Pop-up Opera is supported by Garfield Weston Foundation (Weston Culture Fund), Backstage Trust, D'Oyly Carte Opera Trust, The Cross Trust, The Thistle Trust and Scottish Opera’s Education Angels.
