Ice Cream Opera


Ice Cream Opera

by composer Russell Sarre and librettist Ian McMillan

In collaboration with two fantastic companies Young Opera Venture and Spin Arts, we’re making Ice Cream Opera, a vibrant contemporary pop-up opera performance that celebrates cultural diversity and a great British tradition: the ice cream van.

This project will provide opportunities for people of all ages and demographics to experience opera by performing in public and civic spaces like parks and piazzas and outside theatres and community centres.

Four spectacularly talented young opera singers and a band of live musicians will perform around two customised ice cream vans, accompanied by a community cast to tell a love story set against a turbulent turf war between rival ice cream sellers.

We are planning to tour the show in 2017.  ICO Marketing Pack
