Rehearsal images have been released for King’s Head Theatre’s Puccini double-bill Opera Undone: Tosca & La bohème which begins previews at Trafalgar Studios 2 on 5 February.
Opera Undone is a new strand of the King’s Head Theatre’s celebrated opera programming, whereby famous operas are radically reimagined in a new punchy 60-minute format, sung entirely in English and featuring gender-swapped roles. La bohème is a thoroughly modern look at relationships, addiction and co-dependency in London’s hip and happening Peckham. Tosca is an electrifying tale of love, lies and abuse set in 1940’s New York.
Opera Undone: Tosca & La bohème is directed by, Artistic Director of King’s Head Theatre, Adam Spreadbury-Maher with musical direction by David Eaton.
Opera Undone: Tosca & La bohème will play from 5 February – 7 March 2020 at Trafalgar Studios.
