Opera on Tap – ON DEMAND
Tuesday, April 8, 7:00pm
Dazzle Classical Music Series presents Opera on Tap ON DEMAND, Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 7:00pm. Tonight the audience takes charge. You can change your favorite character’s destiny at a moment’s notice and channel surf from Mozart to Puccini and back. Opera on Tap adds a dash of improv and some of Denver’s best full-bodied operatic voices. The result is an evening of fun surprises for all.
The Dazzle Classical Music Series and Opera on Tap share similar missions to bring classical music to unexpected places. This evening of opera will be something really innovative and out of the box. Instead of their usual themed opera nights, Opera on Tap worked with director Ruth L. Carver to present a live-composed opera with the audience in control of the action.
Singers Thomas Erik Angerhofer, baritone; Elizabeth Kling, soprano; Julie Silver Campbell, soprano; Ruth L. Carver, soprano; Eve Orenstein, mezzo soprano; and Thomas Poole, tenor will perform arias and scenes from a range of operas, including Madama Butterfly, Die Fledermaus, Rigoletto, and Carmen, depending on audience choice.
Opera on Tap Colorado offers audiences exceptional music by outstanding singers, and giving professional singers the opportunity to sing regularly in public in a welcoming, supportive atmosphere. Casual and often raucous, each show has a theme and singers perform arias and ensembles that more or less match that theme. Audiences can expect singers to be top-notch performers singing music from actual operas – often with a drink in hand!
