One of the most successful comic operas of the late eighteenth century, Cimarosa's Il Matrimonio Segreto is about following your heart and makes for a perfect summer opera filled with Pop-up Opera's special humour, sparkle and fun. Packed with tunes and matrimonial mayhem, the opera's premiere in Vienna was the occasion of the longest encore in operatic history.

Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company dedicated to making opera enjoyable and inviting, without losing the quality of musical performance. They aim to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making it fun, fresh and intimate.
