"Sometimes a show comes along that is so ambitious that it takes your breath away... outstanding" Fringe Guru ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "an original, creative and dazzling musical [that] marries the reality television of today with the traditions of life in the past... this play is the future" North West End ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
a mozart OPERA.
A KARDashian musical.
…AT THE SAME TIME.
In 2011, Kim Kardashian televised her fairytale wedding to NBA basketball star Kris Humphries. 72 days later, she filed for divorce. In this brisk, clever and ambitious take on Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, the iconic Kardashian flop takes centre stage with another marriage on the brink: Mozart’s explosive Count and Countess Almaviva. And, arguing which to watch, the Goggle-box inspired young couple, Mike and Amanda.
Three squabbling couples. Three styles of music. One big problem. Combining pop, electronic and classical music; this mashup is a heartfelt reminder to learn to love what you think you hate.
