Every night a Premiere!*
*(and a Derniere...)
Serious music meets surreal comedy, Impropera is opera improvised on the spot from the audience’s suggestions.
With hugely successful shows in London's West End, at the Edinburgh Fringe and across Europe, the company have an international reputation for their unique mix of virtuoso musicianship, agile wit and ingenious storytelling.
Aardvarks and arias. Tragedy and profanity. Come completely unprepared because anything is possible.

Have you ever had that anxiety dream where you are standing in front of a crowd of people (perhaps wearing only a towel) and have no idea what to say? Or worse, sing? For most of us it’s a real nightmare. For Impropera it’s a creative adventure.
In this edge- of-the-pants performance the company will ask you about your dreams and then perform them on stage. No one knows quite what will happen next. So expect the unexpected. And if you nod off in the middle, this is one opera where it doesn't matter.
'The perfect operatic pick-me-up…Four fearless comedians, a pianist happy to improvise in the style of anyone from Scarlatti to Steve Reich, a quick-witted clarinettist, and a well-lubricated audience.' Independent
'Hugely entertaining' The Telegraph
