A Night at the Opera

March 31, 2015

Butlers Wine cellars have teamed up with Court Garden to make you a very special offer.

A brilliant innovative opera company called Pop Up Opera are performing Mozart’s Abduction from the Harem in the lovely Sussex Barn at Court Gardens Farm on Saturday 25th April at 7.30pm. More about the opera later, let us tell you first about the offer designed as a treat for our wonderful Brighton customers: get yourselves to one our shops at about 5.50pm  we will pour you a glass of Court Garden Classic Cuvee, just happens to be one of our favourites, while you wait for free transport to Court Garden. Enjoy wonderful opera including finger food in the interval, there is a cash bar (no prizes for guessing what is available) and then be transported home arriving back around 10.30pm.


The Abduction form the Harem (Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serial) contains some of Mozart’t finest Arias, written just before he got married, so love was on his mind. It is Pop ups talent and amusing captions that will entrance you.

Here are a couple of quotes from reviews of the performances last month:


Views from the Gods - ★★★★

“When you find yourself at a Pop-up Opera production, you feel like a kid in a candy shop left unattended, and just can't help but experience an overwhelming sense of joy at being let in on what I hope is fast turning into one of London's worst-kept secrets.”

“If the thought of going to the opera has always seemed more like a punishment, get ready for a complete change of heart.”

“This is a company which not only has a clear vision of what it wants to do, but the skills to back that up.”

The Daily Express - ★★★★

“Outstanding fun”  

“There are several companies now doing imaginative productions of operas in unlikely venues, but the talent, vitality and humour of Pop-up Opera makes them the most consistent and the best.”

“If you have never been to an opera before, they are definitely the place to start.”
