Pop Up Opera to perform The Secret Marriage, Saturday 15 July Kingsland Church

The plot?  Ridiculously complicated but, in essence…..  a rich Italian businessman attempts to marry off one of his daughters to a mad English toff with disastrous results. One of the most successful comic operas of the late eighteenth century, Cimarosa’s Il Matrimonio Segreto is about following your heart and makes for a perfect summer opera filled with Pop-up Opera humour, sparkle and fun. Packed with tunes and matrimonial mayhem, the opera’s premiere in Vienna was the occasion of the longest encore in operatic history; Leopold II was so delighted that he ordered supper served to the company and the entire opera repeated immediately after!

The Secret Marriage and the all important Pimms Tent are generously sponsored by Sarah and Tavey, Landlords of Kingsland’s The Angel Bar & Kitchen.
