COMIC ARTISTS @ THE OPERA

Comic Aritist Becky Hawkins' depiction of a backstage tour before Comic Artist Night @ DON GIOVANNI

 

It all started in 2009...


When we invited comic artist and blogger Mike Russell to Blogger Night @ The Opera. Instead of writing about the opera, Mike chose to live sketch it. Our artists, staff and patrons loved his work so much that we decided to invite a slew of artists to attend future dress rehearsals to capture — in detail — every operatic gesture.


Our most recent Comic Artist Night took place at a dress rehearsal of DON GIOVANNI, Mozart's take on the Don Juan legend. See what our artists came up with below, and see artwork from past operas here.
