Isabel Hertaeg's Death By Soprano

 In this life affirming black comedy, a soprano attempts to survive to the end of an opera. 

Consequently, a smorgasbord of ‘operatic occupational hazards’ are explored in an alphabetical romp through Grande Opera, from ‘A for Avalanche’ to ‘S for Suicide’. 

If she got to ‘Z’ it wouldn’t be opera!


'A delightfully dark show, decorated with Hertaeg’s wonderful voice'

Death By Soprano is the most recent work by internationally celebrated cabaret artist Isabel Hertaeg.  

Cataloguing the many and varied occupational-hazards soprano characters face in opera, Hertaeg presents an alphabetised smorgasbord of operatic death scenes.  The show begins with A is for Avalanche, and B is for Boiling Alive  and culminates in a grande-finale mashup of famous operatic suicides.  Death By Soprano will tickle the fancy of opera lovers, cabaret fans and those with a penchant for absurdist comedy and theatre.
