It’s shortly after dawn on the North York Moors and a male Cuckoo is having a tiny radio transmitter strapped to his back. A few weeks later he will have flown thousands of miles south, 5km up over the Sahara Desert, sending signals back to England as he travels through Libya, Chad and Congo. For thousands of years the Cuckoo has been part of folklore and its call present in songs, poems and stories. But now this bird is threatened in England and we may soon stop hearing that iconic ‘cuck-coo’. A storyteller and musician follow the trail of this creature with its special place in our culture as bringer of spring.

With comic intrigues and confusions, the story is about following your heart, and makes a perfect summer opera, filled with the special Pop-up Opera humour, sparkle and fun.

With Pop Up Opera it doesn’t matter if you know the story, they whisk you away with sublime singing and delight you with their contemporary comic captions.

The programme includes 'Neck of the Woods,' written specially for the group by local composer/performer John Hymas, and Kurt Weill's Little Threepenny Music.
