Aftermirth Comedy Club
Jun 19 @ 11:00 – 12:30

 

 

 

 

 

 

The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy! AFTERMIRTH is an adult comedy club that you can bring your baby to.

Each month we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians delivering their usual club routines so the material is mature and sweary with the odd birth story flash back…. The only difference is it’s during the day. Babies under 18 months are welcome, but please don’t bring older toddlers because they tend to heckle!

This special gig has reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed and you can walk about or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams.

There’s snacks and drinks available from the bar too so treat yourself to a Prosecco, you deserve it!

The gig is also open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some daytime comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.

AFTERMIRTH is lovingly curated and compered by Angie Belcher.

Please note! There’s limited space, ditch the buggy and bring a sling if you can.

Cosi Fan Tutte
Jul 6 @ 19:30 – 22:10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cosi fan tutte is driven by two men who pretend to go to war and then return in disguise to see how faithful their fiancées really are.

It is being set in the 1960s because it provides a clearer indication of the nature of the disguise than the original transformation from 18th century Neapolitans to 18th century Albanians. The men’s disguise in this production suggests they have got lost on the way back from Woodstock. Despina is no longer be an uppity maid, but a travelling beautician, who has the sisters amongst her clients.

Don Alfonso remains a man who thinks he is the puppet master, manipulating everyone else – but is this really true?

Not to be missed, this exciting Opera of Who ends up with who? Who takes the bet seriously? When do the girls realise what is going on (if at all)? There are many ways that this situation can be resolved and this is part of the enduring fascination of this opera.

Bath Opera return to the Blakehay Theatre this summer after their acclaimed performance of La Boheme in 2018.

Director: Tom Magnone. Musical Director: Peter Blackwood
