The Popera House

We are delighted to be in receipt of funding from Arts Council England for our latest project, Somerset’s first dedicated Opera House! The Bluebirds are building from scratch a fully mobile Popera House to bring opera in a brand new format right to your front door. As the title suggests, it’s a combo of Pop Up Opera and Pop-Opera neatly taking on the behemoths of big time opera and modern time pop. And we’ve created a neat little formula in our own very beautiful Popera House.

It is our mission to bring a little bit of magic directly to the audience every time the Popera House goes out. Behind the doors of our beautifully gilded wagon is a feast of theatre and music. And every visit is unique.

The wagon can be booked for a private or public events. But we also have a season of shows with the Popera House including our inaugural Popera, The Reduced Ring, our own particular take on Wagner’s complete Ring Cycle.

The Popera House will be launching officially in Spring 2020 with a calendar of events. We’ll be visiting primary schools, secondary schools and small festivals with our inaugural show. We’ll also be doing music and theatre workshops alongside The Popera House visits to get our audiences really involved in the show.

So watch this space for The Popera House programme of events.
