A Kim Kardashian Opera Is Happening And We’re Not Sure How We Feel About It

share on:

Possibly the only thing more dramatic than an episode of KUWTK is an opera.

So it’s no wonder this theatre company is taking inspiration from Kim K. Music theatre maestros Leoe & Hyde are updating Mozart’s The Marriage Of Figaro in a satirical opera based on Kim’s disastrous 72 day marriage to giant man-child Kris Humphries.


It’s called The Marriage of Kim K and it’s combining pop, electro and classical music to create the ultimate mash-up.

mash-upFocusing on three squabbling couples – most recognisably the mismatched Katastrophe that was Kim & Kris – the creatives behind the opera are promoting it as ‘a heartfelt reminder of the power of love in tense times’. Err, not entirely sure there was anything heartwarming about the Kim-Kris marriage fiasco, but we’ll go with it. 


The opera is playing from the 25th to the 29th July at The Arcola Theatre as part of the Grimeborn opera series and you can book your tickets here. After that it’s being whisked away to Scotland for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. So, if you want to experience the selfie-filled drama here in London, you’d better be quick to book.
