the operatic revolution starts here!
Lite Bites concert
Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd August 20.10-20.40
Tête à Tête
New work is always volatile, and we’re sorry to say that due to unforeseen circumstances, the Warehouse Ensemble is no longer able to perform Six-Word Operas in Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival this year. We’re happy to say that the performances will be replaced by concert performances of Tête à Tête’s own Lite Bites by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Ergo Phizmiz and Owen Bourne.
Tête à Tête develops, rehearses and performs super-short operas during the Fesetival which are presented at public places across the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham including Ravenscourt Park, Bishop’s Park, Lyric Square and Fulham Palace. Come and join us for a sneak preview as we present concert versions of 3 of this years Lite Bites.

A virtual romance. Two cyber lovers ask themselves exactly who is on the other end of the line… Can you trust your heart in the digital age?
Caring In The Community
Words & Music: Ergo Phizmiz
A charming and heart-warming tale of the unmitigated hatred that can develop between two people living next door to one another. After a long day at the office, a businessman’s evening of watching the X Factor is ruined by the dulcet tones of the opera singer who lives next door.
Music & Words: Owen Bourne
Where two lovers read their love letters aloud in private but may not be… just that… private.
