Unknowing and The Telephone at The Cockpit

A dramatic and humourous opera double bill by Teatime Opera.

There are no dates/times listed for this event | Visit website

Teatime Opera brings lesser known operatic works to the stage, with a focus on young, emerging operatic artists. Their latest performance is a partnership of Unknowing, following a violent and intense love affair, and Telephone, a comedy of miscommunication.

Can we ever really know the person we think we love? Unknowing plots the turbulent, intense and violent relationship between two lovers. Using the music of Schumann’s Dichterliebe and Fraulieben und leben, in a new translation by celebrated conductor David Parry, the piece is a poetic meditation on love’s creative and destructive power. Partnering Unknowing is Menotti's The Telephone, a comedy of failed communication. Ben tries to get a word in edgeways but Lucy keeps on being called away... will he ever manage to propose?
 

 
Unknowing/The Telephone runs 18-22 April at The Cockpit. Find out more and book tickets here.

Gateforth St, , Marylebone, , London NW8 8EH
