Crimes Against Taste return to the Buxton Festival Fringe
The acclaimed Crimes against Taste, fresh from performances for BBC Music Day in Sheffield returns to the Buxton Festival Fringe with their new show ‘Tenor and Baritone’. A Musical Comedy exploring the hilariously tragic lives of two aspiring opera singers.
Thursday 14th & Friday 15th July @ 7.30pm
The Railway, 22 Bridge Street, SK17 6BS
Tickets £10 / £8 concessions
Graham Neal (tenor) and Jon Openshaw (baritone) are budding young opera singers dreaming of superstardom, but when their grumpy accompanist (Robert Webb) brings them down to earth with a few home truths, they are forced into a rethink… perhaps more diversity could hold the key to success…?
The show features two professional opera singers performing music as diverse as opera (mainly with the mick taken out of it) Flanders and Swann, Tom Lehrer, Dolly Parton, Rap and Pop wrapped up in a hilarious story line. You will laugh until you cry – and there really is something for everyone!
Crimes Against Taste are one of the UK’s finest (and only) classical-comedy-cabaret-crossover-acts! Here’s what the audience and reviewers have had to say about them:
“Absolutely brilliant” “Witty and fun evening”
“…exemplary renditions of many of my comedy favourites… I’m already looking forward to your next performance”
".. a lewd sense of humour can lurk beneath the proper exterior... The performance was slick and well-paced … murmurs of approval heard from the outset and some extremely positive audience feedback at the end.”
“That was fabulous, thank you so much. Please do another Sheffield show and I will bring all my friends”
