PORTLAND OPERA PRESENTS

BLOGGER NIGHT @ THE OPERA

for
Così fan tutte
(All women are like that)

Mozart’s surprisingly modern—and very funny—tale about
the nature of love and fidelity just begs to be blogged about!

FRIDAY, FEB. 5, 7:30PM | KELLER AUDITORIUM

 

Portland, Ore.— Portland Opera is pleased to announce the next Blogger Night @ The Opera at the opening night performance of Mozart’s Così fan tutte, Friday, February 5, 2010.  Blogger Night kicked off at the end of last season during Rigoletto and has grown to be a very popular event for the bloggers and their followers. The bloggers also enjoy interacting with the audience who stop by the table to say hello.

The five prominent local bloggers will receive a backstage tour; attend the opening night performance and then live-blog about the whole experience from the Keller Auditorium lobby before, during intermission and after the show.

Each blogger’s individual posts will appear simultaneously on their own websites and/or Twitter accounts and Facebook pages.  We are pleased to welcome four new bloggers and the return of Portland favorite, Byron Beck.  The Così fan tutte bloggers include:

The Oregonian’s GRANT BUTLER (www.oregonlive.com/performance + www.twitter.com/grantbutler);
Live Wire’s COURTENAY HAMEISTER (www.livewireradio.org + www.twitter.com/Wisenheimer);
The Buzz’s SHERYL STEWART (http://blogs.1051thebuzz.com/sheryl/ + www.facebook.com/djsheryl);
BYRON BECK (www.byronbeck.com) and  Oregon Music News’ JAMES BASH (www.oregonmusicnews.com + www.northwestreverb.blogspot.com).


Mozart’s Così fan tutte opens February 5 at Keller Auditorium with additional performances February 7m, 11 and 13.  For more information, please visit www.portlandopera.org
