Curtain-raiser for Flea opera

BRIDPORT’s Electric Palace will be the venue for the town’s first community opera, Ukulele Opera FLEA in May, but before that there is a curtain-raiser event on Friday 28th April.

A Flea in your Ear, at 7pm, will include a flea circus, a talk on fleas by an expert and a film to whet the audiences’s appetite for Flea, which will be on stage from 23rd to 27th May, written by Mike Leigh’s award-winning composer and local resident Andrew Dickson.
