Sopranos must die; it’s the rules of opera. Death by Soprano is an A-Z cliff-notes to operatic demise, complete with outlandish props and costumes, an impressive set of pipes and a higher death toll than a Hollywood blockbuster.

This punch-packing black comedy takes its audience on a Contiki tour of the operatic repertoire, delivering a rapid-fire smorgasbord of magnificently tragic soprano roles. Some of our best-loved divas are delivered with heart wrenching pathos as the show soars to great emotional heights, while others are presented in a more farcical light.

Offering up bite-sized operatic tastes, catering to the opera-curious as well as the most die-hard opera lover, this tongue-in-cheek performance is guaranteed to enlighten, enchant and entertain.

It’s not over till the soprano is dead!

Date & Time: Sunday 7 October at 5pm
