A Brand New Production by Sheffield City Opera
The light-hearted title reflects the comedy of errors that fills this new piece. However, in the best operatic traditions, there’s tragedy too, with a fight to the death.
First SCO created an original story. Then they took operatic arias and choruses and breathed new life into them. Some are well-known and loved, others rare treasures.
Look forward to muscular music by Verdi, Bizet, Puccini, Donizetti, Mascagni, Mozart and others, with some original music by SCO Musical Director, Robert Webb.
The opera is witty, contemporary and staged in modern dress. It will be sung in English with some traditional libretto and some re-setting of words.
It will be staged on 2nd, 3rd and 4th November 2017 at High Storrs School.
As well as six main principal roles, there are numerous smaller parts and plenty of work for the chorus. Rehearsals will take place on some Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons from early June with a break during the school summer holidays.
