Welcome to Opera on Tap DC Metro!
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.
Contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join Opera on Tap for a “Singers’ Choice” night, complete with the choisest (what? it’s a word!) great music. Come drink, cry, laugh, decide to change your life career, all while enjoying an adult beverage. It like therapy, but cheaper and far more fun!

The DC Metro chapter of Opera On Tap (OOT) is on the hunt for fabulous opera singers (21 and up)!
Auditions will be held at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) on Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 11:45am-3:45pm. CHAW is located at 545 7th St. SE, Washington, DC. If you would like to be considered for an audition, please submit a resume and headshot to email@example.com by midnight on Saturday, December 30, 2017. If accepted for an audition, you will be notified of your audition time by midnight on Friday, January 5, 2018.
Singers will be asked to prepare 3 contrasting arias and are welcome to bring additional repertoire (musical theater, operetta, and art songs). In addition, please be prepared to give a brief and compelling introduction to your piece in character (or in first person). Your audience at an Opera on Tap show will be opera lovers and opera newbies alike, but they will all be out for a good time with a drink in hand, so get their attention!
There will be a $10 audition fee taken at the audition – cash, check, or credit card. An excellent pianist will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own (the audition fee still applies).
While we normally cannot offer compensation, we hope to offer regular, small stipends to performers in the future.
