 GO SEE


A provocative and bold exploration of personal, cultural, and sexual identity as told through Marie (Lauren Fox), a woman working in a sex booth on 42nd Street. David (Peter Tate), an anthropologist visits her booth while conducting research for his new book on human sexuality. Neither could have foreseen the outcome.


Norris Church Mailer, author of the novels Windchill Summer and Cheap Diamonds, was raised in Arkansas and moved to New York when she was 26 to start her life with Norman Mailer. Her third book, a memoir titled A Ticket to the Circus, came out to rave reviews in 2010, shortly before her passing in November of that same year. She developed Go See at the Actors Studio and this production is the world premiere.


a show where everything worked in harmony to deliver a fantastic theatrical experience.

Can you believe it? This Christmas is OperaUpClose’s fifth birthday! To celebrate we are reviving three of our best loved productions from over the years. We expect these short seasons to sell out fast, so book your Christmas trips now. If you book for all three, you’ll automatically get 20% off the total ticket price too!


 THE ELIXIR OF LOVE
Our 1950s Hollywood version of Donizetti'sThe Elixir of Love had rave reviews when it opened in February 2013, with the Telegraph saying, "the whole thing fizzes from start to finish", and has been delighting audiences with its technicolour romance ever since.
2 - 13 December




 LA BOHEME
The show that started it all! Our inaugural production in November 2009 went on to three West End transfers, an Olivier Award, a WhatsOnStage award and UK and international tours. Featuring some of your favourite singers, both from the original cast and more recent revivals, La Boheme fittingly runs over Christmas.
16 December - 3 January



THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
Our final production of the season was our first opera at the King's Head Theatre in autumn 2010, Rossini's The Barber of Seville. Our adaptation is set in Jane Austen's England and its combination of gentle irony and laugh-out-loud comedy is the perfect antidote to the January blues.
6 - 17 January

Vesta Tilley was music hall's greatest male impersonator. Her role in recruiting thousands of men during World War I made her the darling of the establishment but as the brutal reality of war became known, whose side was she really on? A one woman, twelve character play with songs by Tom Glover.
16 - 30 November
Billy Joe is relaxing into a life of contentment until he reluctantly joins a partnership that throws his head into the clouds. Clouds are in the sky, right? Where else would they be? A gem of Post-Modern Cabaret and Wild West style party, performed by the CT 2015 Company of East15
5 - 6 December
