A Beatles-inspired opera, performed on a rooftop in the heart of the city. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then you're in luck, as La Beatles Boheme arrives in Melbourne for a short season next month.
A nod to The Beatles' final performance, where the band played atop the Apple Corps building overlooking the London skyline, this new 'opera fusion' show will grace the rooftop of the Flagstaff Carpark, from April 21–29.
The latest from Melbourne's Emotionworks Cut Opera, which is known for its mash-ups of traditional opera and other genres, the show fuses classic Beatles hits with the sounds of Puccini's La Boheme. Clocking in at a bite-sized 90 minutes, it's a tragic love story that promises to have you laughing, crying and singing along. And drinking — on-site bar will be serving drinks throughout each show.
