The Mozart Double

by Lindsay Bramley

Directed by Fiona Williams

Music: W. A. Mozart   |  Words: Lindsay Bramley

Opera Alegria presents two of Mozart’s ‘Singspiel’ (‘sing-plays’): comic operas which sparkle with wit and whimsy.

In Bastien and Bastienne – composed when Mozart was just twelve – two young lovers find their relationship tested by the advice of a magician. In The Impresario – composed five years before his death – two sopranos compete for the prime role in a theatre company with ever more spectacular arias.

Director Fiona Williams brings this dazzling double bill to Grimeborn after critically-acclaimed runs at the Bush Theatre, Tea House Theatre and Colliers Wood Arts Festival. Lindsay Bramley puts a contemporary spin on both works with new English translations.

★★★★★ Small, talented troupes like Opera Alegria ... pull out every comic nuance
