Cimarosa: Il Matrimonio Segreto
The Secret Marriage
Discover this 18th-century Italian comic opera by Domenico Cimarosa. Filled with comic intrigues and confusions, the story is about following your heart. It makes a perfect summer opera, full of wit, sparkle and fun. It will be sung in Italian with silent-movie-style captions in English which keep us abreast of the story, allowing us to watch and engage with the unfolding drama. The captions add context and even more laughter. The opera’s 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 to be repeated immediately after! Pop-Up Opera specializes in making opera accessible in all kinds of unusual and even unlikely venues, from pubs to underground caverns.
