It’s time to take opera out of stuffy concert halls and theaters and get it where it really belongs — in bars.
That’s where you’ll find Opera on Tap.
“We are the most casual opera company in existence,” said General Manager Anne Ricci (pictured). “I think that our casual and interactive approach is what really sets us apart.”
What better place to be casual and interactive than Freddy’s Backroom, the beloved performance space and bar on Dean Street and Sixth Avenue that hosts Opera on Tap once a month.
“It’s hysterical!” said Mike Sternfeld, a Freddy’s bartender. “Everyone’s drinking, there’s lots of screaming and opera.”
Opera on Tap’s “Cymbeline,” 8 pm, March 20 at Galapagos Art Space [16 Main St. at the corner of Water St. in DUMBO, (718) 222-8500]. Tickets are $20 ($15 for students and seniors).
