THE MARRIAGE OF KIM K
This production ended on 30/11/2019
A Mozart opera… a Kardashian musical… at the same time.
Returning after a critically-acclaimed UK tour in 2017, this Gogglebox-inspired opera-musical comedy celebrates learning to love what you thought you hated by fusing ‘high art’ with ‘popular culture’. Three pairs of lives unfold on stage – reality star Kim Kardashian and her 72-day husband Kris Humphries, Mozart’s tempestuous Count and Countess Almaviva of revolutionary France, and a young couple fighting over which of these to watch on TV. This production is a genre-defying smorgasbord of slick electronic pop, classical opera, and contemporary musical theatre.
Leoe&Hyde is a multi-award-winning Manchester-based musical theatre company which uses soundworlds and stories about modern culture to portray depth in the seemingly shallow and the relatability of the seemingly pretentious – all with wit, spectacle, and affection.
