Opera on Tap Colorado will present the first of its kind Mini Festival of Mini Operas in February 24-25 at three arts venues in Lafayette, CO.
Performances will include An Evening of Bite-Sized Opera featuring Douglas Moore's Gallantry and six mini operas by Poulenc, Barber, Menotti and more at the Art Underground Arts Hub, a Meet Your Local Composers presentation featuring live performances and discussions with Colorado composers at The Collective, and Boulder Opera's Firebringers, mini myth operas for kids at the Center for Musical Arts.
"I've been intrigued by a recent trend of tiny operas - and realized it's not really new.
Some stories need three hours to tell - but some only need eight minutes! It's amazing the depth of emotion and character achieved in such a short piece," said Opera on Tap Colorado Director Eve Orenstein. "Lafayette is developing into a very arts-focused community and has two new arts venues that opened recently. We wanted to both highlight and take advantage of that!”
Single tickets range from $8 to $15 and can be purchased at operaontap.org/colorado

About Opera on Tap Colorado:
Opera on Tap was founded in New York City in 2005 when a few singers, out for a drink in Brooklyn, wondered what it would be like if classical singers could gig at local bars like bands do. Opera on Tap has since grown to boast chapters in cities across the country- and now in Colorado!
Opera on Tap Colorado brings opera to unexpected places throughout the state, offering audiences exceptional music by outstanding singers, and giving professional singers the opportunity to sing regularly in public in a welcoming, supportive atmosphere.
While casual and even raucous, Opera on Tap is not an open mic. Each month, shows have a theme and singers perform arias and ensembles that more or less match that theme. Audiences can expect singers to be top notch performers singing music from\ actual operas - often with a drink in hand!
