Love in a...

You are here

Love in a ... is a pop up performance project which since 2012 has been surprising and delighting audiences across Edinburgh. We have had Love in a Library, Love in a Bookshop and even Love in a Flowerbed each of which brought a story of love to life through beautiful artsongs written by composers such as Schumann, Schubert, Wagner, Quilter and Gershwin.

Love in 2014Ghost in a Garden

This year for the first time we are sharing information about the venue and timing of these performances further in advance because those who are surprised once often want to experience it again! In 2014 we also bring you Ghosts in a... which forms part of the Festival's commemoration of the First World War, reflecting upon courage and love in turbulent times.

Our earnest hero and cautious heroine, whose beautiful singing of arias and songs give passers-by a musical breath of fresh air, will pop up in galleries and museums as well as gardens, bookshops, libraries and even palaces. Take a moment to stop and join us. We hope you enjoy your encounter!
