Une Education Manquee | Pop-Up Opera

Oskar produces and performs the role of Pausanias in an exclusive production of Emmanuel Chabrier’s rarely-performed Une Education Manquée for Wilderness Festival 2016.

Set in the time of Louis XVI, Une Education Manquée is the tale of two very young aristocrats who have just been married but are totally innocent of the facts of life: the tutor to whom the young Count turns for advice has spent his whole life out of the world amid books and is equally ignorant. It is only when the disappointed bride, frightened by a thunderstorm, seeks refuge in her husband’s arms that the ‘problem’ solves itself.

Designed specifically for the festival with music direction by William Cole, musical director of mixed-genre club night Filthy Lucre, and stage direction by Herald Angel Award winner Jack Furness.
