Opera is fun. Most people don’t seem to realize how much fun it really is. In order to prove it, Opera on Tap has taken its act to barrooms where they found out that beer on tap enhances the operatic experience. The The New Brew series brings you classical music written by some of today’s most exciting composers, presented in entertaining and irreverent programs by young singers and instrumentalists who relish the direct contact with audiences not inhibited in their reactions by the looming menace of their giant Wagnerian horns.
On on our October program, our curators, Kamala Sankaram and David Gordon, rile up a couple of ditties about (insert suspenseful music) Murder! Mayhem!! and MADNESS!!!
