Our Cosi Fan Tutte performances are now well underway and we’re getting fantastic reactions both from audiences who’ve come along especially to see us and people who we’ve surprised while they’ve been doing the shopping or having a pint in the pub! So far we’ve had scenes popping up in Tooting, Pollards Hill, Raynes Park and Colliers Wood.
Who’d have thought you’d hear the Cosi opening trio of the boys making the bet to test their girlfriends whilst playing pool in the Raynes Park Tavern, or the girls deciding which disguised boy to flirt with in the jewellery section in Colliers Wood M&S? I think my personal favourite though was the boys singing their conversation about whether their girlfriends have cheated whilst coming down the escalator in the Qube shopping centre!
The hugest thanks to all the amazing businesses who’ve given us permission for performing in their stores – we really appreciate your help in bringing opera to everyone in Merton!
We’ve loved seeing everyone’s reactions and been touched by how many people have followed the complicated love story of our characters around town.
We’ve still got performances left this week in Morden, Mitcham, Wimbledon and Wimbledon Village with scenes popping up in more brilliant town centre businesses so we really hope to see you there. And if you have made it along to one of the performances we’d love to know what you thought – especially if you’ve never seen opera before – so do drop us an email or tweet us #StreetOpera.
See you on the high street!
