With a Song in Her Heart
Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose present With a Song in Her Heart, a new one-woman opera all about love.
Our heroine tumbles through all-consuming infatuation, heartbreak and the leap of faith of falling in love again, with some detours into hilarious and unsuitable dates along the way.
This story is told through some of the most popular soprano arias of all time by composers including Puccini, Purcell, Mozart and Verdi, and songs by Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Dvorak and Satie. Performed with a contemporary English libretto, virtuoso pianist and timeless melodies, With a Song in Her Heart is a relatable and uplifting celebration of life, love and music.
