THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH
Freddy’s Bar and Backroom
Straight from the tap, Freddy’s Bar and the Divas of Opera on Tap bring you the Home Brewed Opera series: funny, engaging, immersive operatic concerts in a casual setting.
For this month, put on your face paint and your best glitter pantsuit and join us at Freddy’s on September 13th for an evening of epic music paying homage to the Gorgeous Ladies of the Opera World (GLOW) with our male referees!
From Valkyrie warriors to powerful queens, we will prove once and for all that women in opera aren’t just shrinking violets and swooning ingenues.

Relevant Tones LIVE: Vanishing City
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center
New York, NY
In his book Vanishing New York, Jeremiah Moss argues that gentrification and rising income inequality are causing the city to slowly lose its soul.
Join Seth Boustead, composer and host of WFMT Chicago’s Relevant Tones, for a live broadcast exploring the issue’s impact on music with Moss, Open House New York executive Director Gregory Wessner, architect and author of A Country of Cities Vishaan Chakrabarti, and NewMusicBox co-editor Frank J. Oteri.
Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect, Opera on Tap and conductor Mila Henry will perform music by New York composers who flourished in a bygone, some say golden, era.
On the program: music by cellist, composer, and pop music phenom Arthur Russell; a New York City-premiere choral piece by Julius Eastman (The Moon’s Silent Modulation), a string quartet by Ben Weber, and a forgotten gem by Tui St. George Tucker.
Presented in collaboration with Access Contemporary Music
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

We’re starting a new tradition for our Freddy’s Bar and Backroom shows: LOCAL VOCALS from 8-9pm! We’ve been in the Park Slope neighborhood performing for a LOOOOONG time, and we want to give voice to our neighboring artists- because we love our neighbors! Every Freddy’s show we will feature a different local artist as our opening act. Interested in collaborating with us on a show? Fill out this form and we’ll get back to you ASAP. We look forward to hearing your music!:
LOCAL VOCALS and Opera on Tap Homebrew at Freddys is a presentation of Opera on Tap with media support from BKLYNER and the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District.
Opera on Tap is a proud member of the New York Opera Alliance (NYOA), a consortium of New York City opera companies and producers established to enhance and support the visibility and viability of opera in NYC. Learn more at NYOperaAlliance.org.
