THE CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN OPERA
Boston's freshest opera company puts the audience in the driver's seat for a madcap dash through some of opera's most memorable scenes and music. Will it all end in tragedy — or revelry? The choice is yours!
The Choose-Your-Own Opera is a playful one-hour revue that weaves beautiful and silly operatic arias and small ensembles into different story threads that the audience gets to choose between at key plot points. Both people who are entirely new to opera and connoisseurs with a sense of humor can enjoy this fun and innovative romp through the repertoire.
The cast consists of five singers and one pianist, and the potential musical excerpts in any given show range from Monteverdi to Mozart to Bizet to Verdi and beyond. The show travels very well and we have performed it at a number of venues since 2010.
