What's on Fundraising events Hereford events Pop-up Opera The opera is coming to Lyde Court. Pop-Up Opera is an innovative touring opera company which aims to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making it intimate and engaging. The company aims to reach those who are hesitant about opera, as well as dedicated opera lovers. The opera being performed will be La Tragédie de Carmen. La Tragédie de Carmen, a reimagining of Bizet’s famous masterpiece by Peter Brook, is pared back to the heart of the piece: the tragedy of four people. The intense interaction of these characters creates a moving and thought-provoking piece of theatre coloured by Bizet’s wonderful music including Carmen’s ‘Habanera’, Escamillo’s Toreador Song and Don José’s Flower Song, along with some reworking to the score by Marius Constant. Fans of Carmen will be given a unique insight as Don José reflects on what happened, as the story is revealed to us in flashbacks. A familiar tale, with a fascinating twist.
