A Trip to Africa

A Trip to Africa Poster

WORLD PREMIERE of  Franz von Suppé’s Comic Opera in 3 Acts 

“A Trip to Africa is a piquant opera. It is one of Suppé’s operas that is both pretty and rich. It contains refreshing music, rich choruses, fine orchestration and beautiful numbers. There are but few works that can equal it. It is full of spirit and brilliancy!” (New York Times, 1887)

A tale of love, deception and adventure set in  19th century Cairo and along the Nile.

After almost 140 years since its first production, 100 since its last performance, and more than two years of research, A Trip to Africa will delight opera lovers once again, starting in Norwich.

Come and enjoy a newly rediscovered gem of Viennese operetta by one of its masters.

Concert performance conducted by Dario Salvi, music by the Imperial Vienna Orchestra with a cast of soloists. Onstage chorus: the Octagon Singers. In English.
