Michaelmas Week 3
The Beginner’s Guide to the Opera is a brand spanking new introduction to the world’s greatest, gaudiest and most ludicrous art form. Forget La Scala, forget The Met New York- the Corpus Christi Playroom is the only setting for a fast-paced heretical romp through the staves of musical history. Tracing opera’s unlikely journey from the verdant pastures of North Yorkshire to the ‘gator-filled swamps of New Orleans, this one-woman sketch show provides a refreshingly insolent insight into the elite yet all-encompassing world of opera. So, whether you’re a well-rehearsed libretto Lothario or a reluctant vibrato virgin, leave the evening gloves at the door, and prepare yourself for an evening of glass-smashing, spear-bashing entertainment.
