The Kardashian musical 💋
The Mozart opera 🎻
At the same time 😍

In 2011, Kim Kardashian televised her fairytale wedding to NBA basketball star Kris Humphries. 72 days later she filed for divorce.

In this brisk, clever and ambitious take on Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, the iconic Kardashian flop takes centre stage with another marriage on the brink: Mozart’s explosive Count and Countess.

Three squabbling couples. Three styles of music. One big problem. Combining pop, electronic and classical music, this bitingly satirical romp is a heartfelt reminder of the power of love in tense times.
