West Wight Arts Association,


Pop up juliet

The last concert of the West Wight Arts Association’s season will be a celebration of its 70th birthday, the Association having been founded in 1947.

Pop Up Opera, familiar to many who have experienced the special magic they create at the Garlic Farm, will be performing Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi, the Montagues and the Capulets.

Here is what they have to say about it.

Bellini's classic bel-canto opera is brought to life in an intense chamber production by the critically acclaimed Pop-Up Opera, sung in Italian with English captions. Running time 1 hour 45 minutes plus interval Recommended ages 12+

"A two-hour explosion of beautiful music, top-class singing, and exceptional acting... I honestly cannot imagine anyone, of any age or class or tastes, who would have been bored or unmoved." The Times

Tickets at £12.50 (students and children £2.00) are available on or from 756028.

The performance will start at 7.00 in the Memorial Hall, Freshwater.
