About this show

Opera Grows in Brooklyn is an ongoing collaboration between American Opera Projects, "known for bringing cutting-edge vocal production to the masses," (New York), and Opera on Tap, "…raucous and sublime...un-elitist, imperfect, and fun…" (NY Sun), that presents 90 minutes of songs and scenes from contemporary composers in a hip, cabaret-style atmosphere. Audiences have a chance to meet the artists and composers after the performance. Featuring: - an NYC couple struggling with Bloomberg's smoking ban in Hilliard and Boresi's intermezzo The Filthy Habit performed by Opera on Tap - scenes from Matt Marks' darkly-humorous serial killer song-cycle The Adventures of Albert Fish - La BoneMe, a collection of comedic sex songs including "Annus Mirabilis" from Daniel Felsenfeld, "The Other Laughing Song" by Becca Anderson and Paul Castles, and selections from "Positions 1956," a 1950s sex manual reconceived by Conrad Cummings and Michael Korie as a hilarious Baroque opera.
