PART OF OUR FRINGE FESTIVAL PROGRAMME, OUTDOORS AT MUSSELBURGH RACECOURSE (FRONT OF GRANDSTAND)
Pop-up Opera is back on the road with a tour featuring two of Gilbert & Sullivans' best-loved hits.

Experience all the drama and wonder of grand opera on a miniature scale, with open-air performances brought to life by a storyteller, two singers, instrumentalists - and a sumptuous set of specially created illustrations.

Immerse yourself in print-sized versions of HMS Pinafore and Pirates of Penzance, which take you on an unforgettable journey through the operas' musical and dramatic highlights - in just 30 minutes each. Packed with screwball humour, memorable characters, and of course brilliant tongue-twisting tunes, these mini operas are perfect for audiences of all ages.

Suitable for all ages.
