OUR NEXT SHOWS

HOT SUMMER NIGHTS + DANCE PARTY!
Friday, August 22, 2014
8:00pm
Deer Pile
206 East 13th Avenue, Denver
Suggested Donation: $8 advance/$10 day of show

It's summertime and we're languoring in the steamy, sultry side of opera.

We're bringing you hot and bothered, humid and hazy, up all night up to no good arias and opera scenes - you'll need a midnight dip to cool off!

And - since this is the last show after more than a year at Deer Pile, we will be getting down with a party after the show - so come dance with us!


SPICE, CASKS, AND SONG

Saturday, August 23, 2014
7:00pm
Upslope Brewing Company
1898 South Flatiron Court
Boulder, CO 80301
Tickets: $25

Opera on Tap has been pairing beer with arias at local Colorado breweries and having a grand time - and now we are upping the ante! We will be pairing arias with Upslope Brewery Beer, and FOOD! That's right. Savory Spice Shop Boulder and chef Sean Smith from Zeal will be designing food to go with our music.

We will take you on a tour around the world guided by the spices of each region, starting in the Americas, moving to the British Isles, then on to Western and Eastern Europe.  There will be bites and beer to go with each region, including a special beer that Upslope is creating just for this event! This will be the only time you will be able to taste this beer - do not miss it!

Ticket price includes tasting menu, a flight of 2 oz. samplers of beer from Upslope Brewing Company, and an evening of operatic arias and ensembles performed by Opera on Tap Colorado's locally crafted, free-range opera singers.

ABOUT OPERA ON TAP COLORADO

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!
