Impropera

Saturday October 1st @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

We are Impropera.

We make up operas on the spot from your suggestions.

No script. No score.  No safety net

With hugely successful shows in London’s West End, at the Edinburgh Fringe and across Europe, Impropera have an international reputation for their unique mix of virtuoso musicianship, agile wit and ingenious storytelling.  

Aardvarks and arias. Tragedy and profanity. Impropera can make a musical production about absolutely anything. With a bit of help from the audience in the way of suggested phrases, words or scenarios, Impropera draws you into their world of diverse characters, all sung with profound emotional commitment and comedic verve.

Every show is a once in a lifetime, never to be seen again operatic event!

“Rising to the audience’s every challenge, the company quickly weave a plot of brilliant ingenuity, embroider it with musical parody and bring wonder and joy to all.”

“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, sorry, chorus…The perfect operatic pick-me-up.”

“It’s a hugely entertaining musical show… It’s fascinating to watch the singers throwing the hot potato from one to another, providing an object lesson in seat-of-your-pants thinking. Such riotously good fun that even I lose my inhibitions.”

“Indescribably Funny. Opera is long overdue this improvisational going-over – especially when it is done with the love and care of impropera”

“Beware you can get addicted to Impropera”
