Tour archive for Two Caravans (Opera or Operetta). 29th September 2013-20th October 2013 [TOUR]

Details

Two caravans perch on a hilltop in a strawberry field in Kent - one for the men and one for the women. The residents have come from all over the world in search of a better life - and, perhaps, love - in England's green and pleasant land. Fresh off the boat from the Ukraine, Irina looks forward to meeting a cultured English gent, and certainly isn't interested in her unsophisticated compatriot Andriy. But when Russian gangster Vulk decides the best way to romance Irina is to kidnap her, Andriy is forced to set off in search of the girl he really, truly, categorically isn't in love with. Riffing on Marina Lewycka's brilliant novel, composer Guy Harries has set Ace McCarron's hilarious libretto to exuberant Eastern European melodies, creating a warm-hearted and dramatic new opera. At once a hilarious romp of a road trip and keen-eyed social satire, this tale for our times will appeal to fans of comedy, music, romance and living life to the full.
