In need of some opera, but tired of the same old ballads?
Come to the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 19 to listen to “OPERAtion Brooklyn” by American Opera Projects & Opera on Tap.
Young performers will sing the progressive new works of opera, written by young composers.
“OPERAtion Brooklyn” is a collection of operas that are sophisticated and risqué. The group’s pieces challenge the conventions of the traditional vocal form. One opera is about texting and walking, another is about the subway and yet another one touches on the NYPDs Stop-and-Frisk.
If you’re interested, come today, Wed., Sept. 19, at 7:30 p.m. at Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, 58 7th Ave Brooklyn, NY 11217.
