Opera At The Casa
La Bohème – Flat Pack Music
Saturday 29th September 7.30pm
Tickets – £10
We’re delighted to welcome back Flat Pack Music to The Casa for Puccini’s unforgettable story of love and tragedy between Rodolfo and seamstress Mimi set in 19th century Paris against a backdrop of ill health and poverty. Will the flame between the two lovers survive or flicker and die? Flat Pack Music are a professional opera company who sing in English to live musical accompaniment.
Anyone who came to The Casa earlier this year to see their performance of Cosi Fan Tutte can testify how breath-takingly great they were. And if you’re not convinced here’s a 5 star review for La Boheme from North West End:
‘You’ve got to know what you’re doing to take opera in a slightly different direction and Flat Pack Music have that in droves as this superb production perfectly fills the void between traditional opera and the more recent musical interpretation of Rent, with the English language translation adding to the audience’s appreciation of superbly performed arias from the cast.’
Mark Davoren, North West End
We have four productions coming this summer which in one way or another look at sexuality and sexual identity. We start in June with Bespectacled Theatre’s ‘The Plumbing’ a frank, raw but also comic look at what people get up to in the sexual arena. Following quickly on their heels, we welcome Skint Productions over from Manchester (on their way to Off Broadway, New York, no less) for their LGBTQ comedy ‘Once a Year on Blackpool Sands’, which looks at the quest for sexual identity and acceptance during a working class holiday weekend at Britain’s most famous seaside resort in the 1950s with a communist stripper, a defiant transvestite and six characters battling to express themselves! Then in July we welcome Millennium Theatre to The Casa for John Fletcher’s ‘The Tamer Tamed‘ a hilarious riposte to Shakespeare’s ‘Taming of the Shrew’ in which the misogynistic Petruchio very much finds the table’s turned in his second marriage to Maria. Later in July and leading into Pride weekend, Liverpool’s very own LGBTQ company, Grin Theatre, bring four ‘playlets’ in their annual production ‘Queertet 2018’.
So whether is brotherly, sisterly, platonic or conjugal love you’re after we have it all at The Casa this summer!
