A fun night out at the opera where strangers try in-person speed dating for the first time since the pandemic!
“Swipe left, swipe right, there’s gotta be more to dating life.” Don't swipe your life away at home alone, get dressed, and come out for a hilarious night at the opera where quirkiness, insecurities and awkwardness of in-person dating will make you feel alive and happy with schadenfreude!
A 75-minute comedy blending musical theatre, cabaret music, American songbook, and folk music with opera. Perfect for first time opera goers! Opera lovers in the know will enjoy some hidden gems, this opera has something for everyone.
Hilarious singing, beautiful harmonies, and a chance to share belly laughs with strangers, this is exactly what the doctor ordered!
Speed Dating Tonight! is one of the most performed contemporary operas in the last 10 years with over 100 different productions around the world. This production will be its Asian premiere, with music/lyrics especially composed to fit the current post-pandemic Singapore.
Featuring a talented cast of veterans and the bright future of the Singaporean opera scene, this is an ensemble you won't want to miss.
Who knows, watching these daters might give you the courage to get back out there!
