Tête à Tête hosts work from Europe, UK and the US in King's Cross
This summer Tête à Tête is limbering up for its big 2017 celebration of making opera (twenty years) and curating festivals (ten years) with six nights of new opera as part of the King’s Cross Cubitt Sessions – a programme of live music in the Lewis Cubitt Square, a new civic space on Stable Street, just north of Granary Square.
Starting on July 31 with Impropera improvising a show based on audience suggestions (The Next Frontier), it continues with New York’s Bollywood influenced opera cabaret Bombay Rickey (August 3); Secrets – Belgium’s Muziektheater Transparant’s take on how hidden thoughts link us all together (August 5); Divertimento for Rope & Strings – an unravelling concert with aerialists by London’s Gisele Edwards and Riotous Company (August 7) and The Remarkable Rocket – an adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s short story by Waste Paper Opera from Birmingham on August 10. The brief season concludes on August 12 with Sholololo! – a chamber opera of English football terrace songs from Opéra Louise, Switzerland.
Tête à Tête’s Cubitt Sessions open on July 31 at the Lewis Cubitt Square, King’s Cross, London.
