Eine Brexit-Operette

Music & Comedy

Rebecca Carrington and Colin Brown have come up with a turbulent operetta that not only examines the hair-raising motives in the ancient Persian tale, but also takes a tongue-in-cheek look at current European politics. 

Sometimes nothing happens for decades, and then an entire century passes in a week! This is the fate suffered by cellist Carrie Puddleton and the singer Lawrence Longstaff, the only two members of the Royal Imperial Victorian Opera Company from good old England who have managed to reach continental Europe before their ship finally sinks.  

And now the two of them have to perform Puccini’s great opera "Turandot" on their own. An impossible task, during which quite a  few things go horribly wrong. The not only misspell the name of the title figure, but also get a few strands of the plot mixed up. Strangely though, the story becomes increasingly contemporary because of this. Doesn’t Turandot’s dog bark in a way very reminiscent of a former English minister? And does the man-murdering queen staggering about in the fog of British sensibilities not seem very familiar? The question here is not “To be or not to be”, but rather “Should I stay or should I go”!
