The Birmingham Stage Company is delighted to be joining forces with BBC Proms, Lion Television and ENO to present Horrible Histories ’Orrible Opera, an irreverent introduction to opera which will be performed at the Royal Albert Hall.

From dying divas and spellbinding sorceresses to ghosts and generals, join us for a high-decibel dive into the Horrible History of Opera. Experience the very best of music’s biggest, bloodiest and most dramatic genre, and discover the stories behind some of opera’s best-loved tunes in the company of your favourite Horrible Histories characters. Join the English National Opera Chorus and Orchestra for this specially devised concert experience, featuring music from operas including Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Puccini’s Turandot, Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance and Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.

BBC Proms relaxed performances are designed to suit individuals or groups who feel more comfortable attending concerts in a relaxed environment. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and audience members are free to leave and re-enter the auditorium at any point. There will be chill-out areas, where spaces are made for anyone needing a bit of quiet time before or during the performance.
