Welcome to OOT Boston!


This fun, enthusiastic and talented group of local singers can be found in bars, restaurants, art galleries, outdoor parks, and much more! They are singing the tunes of your favorite operas, musicals, art songs and even jazz standards. They let down their hair and give the audience a taste of what feels like an after hours back stage party. So come join us at our next event in Boston!

Contact us with any questions at boston@operaontap.org

Opera on Tap is a non-profit organization whose mission is to break down the stereo-type that opera is a stuffy or elitist art form by bringing it to bars. Local singers let their hair down and bring you into what feels like an after hours back stage party, singing some of opera’s best known and little known pieces in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Opera on Tap at The Milky Way: Missed Connections



Do you still yearn for the Uber driver who got away?  Did one smoldering glance from a police officer at Downtown Crossing ruin all other men for you? Can you no longer enjoy freshly brewed coffee without picturing the eyes of that sassy Kendall Square barista?

Join Opera on Tap for an evening of Missed Connections, as we honor the love stories that almost were.

Wednesday, May 27th 9:00pm

Milky Way/Bella Luna Restaurant in Jamaica Plain

…..because some stories are better heard with beer.
