Edinburgh Preview: Madame Chandelier's Rough Guide to the Opera

  • The Cavendish Arms 128 Hartington Rd, London SW8 2HJ (map)

Madame Chandelier presents a work-in-progress performance of her Edinburgh show, Madame Chandelier’s Rough Guide to the Opera.

In a camp fusion of comedy, cabaret and opera, Madame Chandelier guides you through her favourite opera plots, with jokes, drinking games, and a Nessun Dorma sing-along! Having stolen this great music from the grand opera house, Madame Chandelier, the joyfully ridiculous and self-proclaimed anti-diva of opera, is tearing down the pretence and bringing opera to the people. Remember Anna Russell? You’ll love Madame Chandelier.

Real opera is expensive, but Madame Chandelier is free*. (50 min)
