art song
noun
 1a song written to be sung in recital, typically with piano accompaniment and often set to a poem.

Art songs are lovely.  

Sometimes they come in groups called song cycles with words written by famous poets.  

Sometimes they are quiet and pensive.  

Sometimes they are as big as the biggest opera arias.

They can be nuanced and sparkling and transcendant.

And they are always better heard in smaller rooms.

We'll show you.

OPERA ON TAP COLORADO IS HERE!


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 was founded in New York City in 2005 when a few singers, out for a drink in Brooklyn, wondered what it would be like if classical singers could gig at local bars like bands do. Opera on Tap now boasts chapters in cities across the country - including Colorado since 2011!

We bring opera to unexpected places throughout the state, offering audiences exceptional music by outstanding singers, and giving professional singers the opportunity to sing regularly in public in a welcoming, supportive atmosphere.

Win win!

While casual and even rawkus, Opera on Tap is not an open mic. Each month, our shows have a theme and singers perform arias that more or less fit that theme. Audiences can expect singers to be top notch performers singing music from actual operas. Often with a drink in hand!
