Warp-signed production type Kwes has partnered with Go Opera and Italian brewers Peroni to create a series of “immersive” opera concerts. Yes, opera.

The Opera di Peroni project, as will be staged live in various cities throughout July and August, will feature Kwes’ take on selected arias from Verdi’s ‘La Traviata’ and Puccini’s ‘La Boheme’ and ‘La Rondine’.

Says its Creative Director James Hurley: “The team and I have had the creative freedom to produce a completely unique musical-theatrical event which pushes the boundaries of what people may have come to expect from a night at the opera. We encourage everyone to leave their preconceptions at the door!”

You’ll find further details and ticket info at www.operadiperoni.com, and the listings just here:

5-7 Jul: London, Triton Square
11-12 Jul: Birmingham, Cathedral Square
18-19 Jul: Manchester, Media City
