Opera Preview: The Secret Consul @ A Secret Location

This post is brought to you in partnership with Soho Theatre.

Opera goes guerilla next week with a site-specific presentation of The Secret Consul somewhere in deepest Limehouse.

This adaptation of Gian-Carlo Menotti’s Pulitzer Prize winning The Consul (1950), addresses the bureaucracy of immigration against a backdrop of Kafkaesque officialdom. An international cast of emerging opera stars and a chorus of London’s newly-arrived - representing over twelve different nationalities - sing this opera of borders and national divides.

He’s a civilised man, the Consul, we’ve heard. With the best of intentions, we’ve heard. But always keeping us waiting. So, come with us. Wait with us. Waiting – and wanting – to speak to the Consul, to hear from the Consul. Just a word, just a whisper – or even a visa. Just one little visa. This time… Maybe this time?

The Secret Consul is presented by The Wedding Collective for Soho Theatre and is performed at a secret location in Limehouse from 22 June - 16 July. Tickets £15/£12.50 conc.
