PORTLAND OPERA’S

“Would you like an aria with those fries?”

BROWN BAG SERIES CONTINUES
APRIL TOPIC
OPERA IMPROV
We’ll give the audience the nuts and bolts of an opera, and they will create one on the spot!

This month Portland Opera will offer the lunchtime audience the opportunity to create an opera…on the spot!  Comedy, tragedy, adventure?  The audience will decide.  The talented performers from Portland Opera To Go, the touring division of Portland Opera’s Education and Outreach department, will be on hand to take the cues and provide plenty of entertainment.  

OPERA IMPROV was conceived and directed by Kristine McIntyre for Portland Opera To Go.  After a successful three-month tour bringing OPERA IMPROV to 12,000 students across the state, Portland Opera To Go artists will be back in town on April 4, for a free public performance.
