AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Victorian Opera has transformed Kathy Lette's best-selling, funny and wise novel into an irresistible brand new opera.

'This witty and irreverent tale follows the lives of married couples Cass and Rory, and Jas and Studz. Filled with handy life hints, this brand new chamber opera will take you on a hilarious romp through a series of misdemeanours and betrayals, leading to a dramatic climax - confirming all that is domestic is not necessarily filled with bliss!'
