Six-Pack (2002)


Six Pack harnesses the power of music, words, gripping performances and superlative production. This is surprising, daring and intimate storytelling. A great night out for anyone with a sense of adventure…


Jill’s 47th blind date is her worst and probably last…


Susannah is ambushed by paparazzi…


Kevin the postman has trouble with the householders on the odd side…


Natalie’s waiting for that phone call, trying not to slip on the red herrings…


Kylie watches an eclipse with her old ladies…


…and everyone is waiting for Jack to change their lives…



“Tête à Tête are probably the best purveyors of contemporary opera in the country, certainly the most hip”

Independent on Sunday


“The mission of Six-Pack is elegantly simple on paper but hugely challenging to realise: to demonstrate that contemporary opera can be engaging, fun and immediate. It’s a testament to the imagination and flair of the six featured composers and their librettists that the whole evening is pacy, vibrant and entertaining, making the whole show and intoxicating night at the theatre”
