Critical acclaim for Il Matrimonio Segreto  


★★★★ The Stage   ★★★★ Planet Hugill  

★★★★ Live Theatre UK  ★★★★ Classical Source 

★★★★★ Jonathan Baz Reviews

“the acting honours among the women went to Vivien Conacher’s dippy Aunt Fidalma…who created a real comic grotesque…. as well as vocal panache”  – LIVE THEATRE UK

“Vivien Conacher’s titilatingly sassy aunt [was] particularly delightful” – PLANET HUGILL

“Blending seamlessly into the no-holds-barred spirit… a slinky Vivien Conacher (Fidalma)” – THE STAGE

“Vivien Conacher was fabulously suggestive as the well-informed aunty, coaching her nieces with a battered copy of The Joys of Sex” – CLASSICAL SOURCE

...Fidalma (the hysterical Vivien Conacher) and her instruction-manual inspired lustful lurches…” – JONATHAN BAZ REVIEWS

“The vocals of the main cast were incredibly strong, especially those of the main female leads, and yet even during the most challenging solo arias, duets and harmonies, there was some immense physicality to the action” SAVAGE ONLINE

 

POPUP OPERA’s Il Matrimonio Segreto tours the UK until 3 September – see schedule for dates and ticket information.


Triumph in Hastings

Battle Choral Society’s Mozart in May concert reviewed as “breathtaking & triumphant”. Special mention was made of Vivien and her fellow soloists:

“The evening’s four soloists, youthful but simply brimming with ability, were a joy… each had their moments, and they blended immaculately in the quartets”
