Opera and comedy-lovers get set – an international show is about to arrive at Teatru Manoel that will be a night to remember for the whole family!
The Opera Locos features a troupe of five eccentric and exceptional lyrical singers, as they perform a repertoire of the greatest composers of their genre – with an unusual twist. Cleverly fusing these well-known opera hits with rock and pop classics in the most original way, the performers reveal their hidden passions and desires throughout the show, with unpredictable and hilarious consequences.
“We can’t wait to welcome The Opera Locos to Teatru Manoel on 11 December,” says Antoine Farrugia, Creative Artist. “This is a unique opportunity for both opera-lovers and genre newbies in Malta to experience a fantastic show from this Madrid-based company, with professional opera singers serving both comedy and spectacle in an interactive and genius production.”
Locos by name and crazy by nature, the comic opera show’s fresh blend of physical comedy, musical performance and inventive staging creates a truly spectacular experience and pushes opera closer to audiences of all ages worldwide. The Opera Locos has already received rave reviews in more than 300 cities across Europe, Asia and Latin America, and was named Best Musical at The Max Awards for the Performing Arts in 2019 – Spain’s equivalent to the Tony Awards or the UK’s Laurence Olivier Award.
Apart from the hilarious and breath-taking physical theatre, The Opera Locos features a rich programme of operatic hits including music from The Magic Flute, The Barber of Seville, La Traviata, Turandot and much more.
The Opera Locos will perform at Teatru Manoel on 11 December at 6pm and 8.30pm. With a duration of around 85 minutes, the show is suitable for audiences aged six and above. Tickets are available via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone on (+356) 2124 6389 or from www.teatrumanoel.mt.
