Der Schauspieldirektor & Bastien und Bastienne

Pop-Up Opera are part of the festival for the first time this year with their new Mozart Double Bill: Der Schauspieldirektor & Bastien und Bastienne. The production will be directed by New British Music Theatre Award nominee, Anna Pool, critically acclaimed for her bold and fierily original directing style.

Sit back and enjoy two delicious one-act comedies in which a pair of actresses battle it out to be the prima donna, and a pair of lovers tease and test their feelings for each other. These brilliant gems showcase Mozart’s gorgeous music and sense of playfulness, the first written in the last 5 years of his life and the second when he was just 12 years old! Two lively and engaging stories to delight you either side of an interval.

“Whether you love opera, or you’ve never been to one, be sure to catch this”  Time Out

“Take your kids, take your parents, take yourself, for an eye-opening evening of raw talent”  Bargain Theatre

I went with my son who had never been to any kind of opera before. This was a delightful, funny, and enjoyable performance in a very relaxed and friendly venue. We both thought it was fabulous, with excellent singing in German accompanied by lovely piano music and with amusing translations on the screen. We will definitely go to see pop-up opera again.

Thoroughly exuberant evening. It was a treat to hear such quality singing close-up. The venue worked really well. St Andrew's Church and community hub is a great environment for the performing arts: comfortable and intimate with superb acoustics. Visited St Andrew’s Community Hub on 2018-05-17
