Lunchbreak Opera presents Lennox Berkeley’s sparkling and witty short opera A Dinner Engagement. Lord and Lady Dunmow, whose resources unfortunately no longer match up to the grandeur of their titles, prepare to host some very special guests for dinner. Yet all does not go to plan in this farcical and fizzing piece of light and lyrical opera.
Lunchbreak Opera’s mission is to persuade those who work in the area to take a proper lunch break, and a few times a year, to spend it nourishing their artistic imagination. We do two productions a year, previously including Gianni Schicchi, Prima la Musica, Suor Angelica & A Dummies Guide to Opera.
Catch the show at St Botolph’s Church Hall in Bishopsgate 17-21st or Bridewell Theatre on Fleet Street 26-28th February. Performances are under 1 hour long and free entry. Go on, feed your creative side!
