Opera In The Garden
Friendship... Betrayal... Intrigue... Love... Laughter... Mischief...!
Rogue Opera’s ‘Opera Cabaret in the Garden’ presents the best (and worst) characters in opera, taking you though the big tunes, the tear-jerkers, the crowd-pleasers and, of course, the drinking songs.
From the classics, to the greatest hits you didn’t know you knew, to our favourite hidden gems, you'll be introduced to some of opera's infamous heroes, villains, lovers, jokers and martyrs and losers. With English dialogue woven throughout and all pieces sung in the original languages (plus an online program with full translations) this is a great show for the opera buff or opera-curious alike, with music from Bizet, Donizetti, Mozart, Puccini, Rossini, Verdi and more.
And while Opera is all about larger-than-life characters embroiled in high drama, the performers can be pretty Diva-like too! Rogue Opera’s cast of 5 will take you on a journey not only through their favourite opera personas, but also give you a behind the scenes, tongue-in-cheek look inside the world of the opera archetypes: “The Soprano”, “The Mezzo”, “The Tenor”, “The Baritone” and “The one on the piano”.
