Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company dedicated to making opera enjoyable and inviting for all. The Secret Marriage is directed by Max Hoehn; winner of the 2015 Independent Opera Director Fellowship and nominee for ‘Best Young Director’ at the 2016 International Opera Awards.
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 humour, sparkle and fun. The opera’s story is about a rich Italian businessman’s attempt to marry off one of his daughters to a mad English toff with disastrous results. Packed with tunes and matrimonial mayhem, the opera’s premiere in Vienna was the occasion of the longest encore in operatic history; Leopold II was so delighted that he ordered supper served to the company and the entire opera repeated immediately after!

"FIVE stars for an opera with no orchestra, very little design and no big stars itself? Yes; five stars" — Daily Express
