Pop-Up Opera: Il Matrimonio Segreto - Stonham Parva
Il Matrimonio Segreto (The Secret Marriage) by Cimarosa - a sparkling operatic comedy in a beautiful church
Pop-Up Opera hosts a live performance of Il Matrimonio Segreto (The Secret Marriage) by Cimarosa in the beautiful church at Stonham Parva in the rolling Suffolk countryside.
This 18th-century Italian comic opera by Domenico Cimarosa has hints of Mozart's influence in the score. Filled with comic intrigues and confusions, the story is about following your heart, and makes a perfect summer opera filled with Pop-up Opera's humour, sparkle and fun. Its premiere 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 performance starts at 3.00 p.m., but you are warmly invited to arrive earlier and (subject to weather) enjoy a picnic in the grounds adjoining the church. A complimentary glass of wine or soft drink will be offered in the interval.
Toilets are provided with car parking in a field near the church.
Tickets are priced at £45 with all profits going to support our work.
