Opera on the Run presents...
Opera on the Run’s original,
intoxicating mix of comedy, classical music, narrative and
song has stormed to immense popular appeal some of London’s
most prestigious venues, such as The New Ambassadors
Theatre, the Jermyn Street Theatre, The Savoy, Café Royal,
and The Ritz after their humble beginnings as singing
waiters in Soho restaurants only five years ago.
Dynamic duo Tim Armstrong-Taylor and Ian Bloomfield follow
their 2005 Pleasance Edinburgh hit A Comedy of Arias with a
tale based on true events of a fictional stag weekend in
Amsterdam. In this modern Chaucerian saga; John and Dan,
exhausted by the mundane loneliness of their lives and the
gravity of their imminent middle-age, escape to Amsterdam
where chaos ensues as they both fall for the same Dutch
beauty. Underscored with the world’s best loved classical
music (Sabre Dance, Toccatta and fugue, Meditation, Also
Sprach Zarathustra, Pomp and Circumstance…) Turning Heads
will take you on a rollercoaster journey through one
thousand, six hundred and eighty three bars in just 59
Opera on the Run’s trademark fusion of well known classical
music with modern comedy reinvents some of the best known
works for easy access and enjoyment for modern audiences
everywhere. They are currently touring The Perfect Picnic,
setting Mozart to a modern Libretto, and Spaghetti Opera,
where some of the world’s best known Italian opera stud the
story of a man facing persecution from the mafia.
