OperaUpClose celebrates the beginning of its residency at MAST with Concerts in the Café: Shakespeare Re-Shaped, a lively programme of spoken-word, music and opera, bringing a fresh, contemporary resonance to the Bard’s work.
Sit back with a glass of wine, a cocktail or some tea and cake, and enjoy words and music inspired by Romeo & Juliet, Measure for Measure and Much Ado About Nothing with well-loved songs, arias and duets by Verdi, Gounod and Quilter. The programme also includes new writing by Kat Rose-Martin and a rare opportunity to hear Guy Woolfenden’s Songs of Ariel, first commissioned for Ian Charleson in the RSC’s iconic production of The Tempest.
Featuring an internationally renowned cast including soprano Claire Wild, actor and writer Kat Rose-Martin and tenor Joseph Doody, this is a joyful celebration of words and music and the return to live performance, in an informal ‘up close’ setting.
OperaUpClose is renowned for its work re-imagining, refreshing and renewing the operatic canon for new and diverse audiences across the UK, ‘leading an artistic revolution’ Sunday Times. Previous works include La Bohème (Olivier Award winner, Best New Opera Production), Mary, Queen of Scots (★★★★ Evening Standard) and The Magic Flute (★★★★ Independent).
