Alpine Theatre Project professional theatre company continues its “Summer of Inspiration” with “OperaLesque.”
“OperaLesque,” a tantalizing mix of opera, classical burlesque and aerial circus acts will be presented Aug. 23 to 25. This all-new show features new aerial acts and new songs by some of the greatest opera singers in the nation from the Metropolitan Opera and New York City Opera, mixed with tantalizing burlesque and classic circus. Patrons will step into the world reminiscent of the Moulin Rouge and the big-top circuses of old, enjoying cocktails while being treated to vocal and physical virtuosity around them and above them. The late-night performances are for adults only. Only 60 seats are available per performance. Patrons will be seated around a solo piano in the ATP Garage while the action takes place all around, and even above them, creating an immersive experience. The show contains partial nudity.
“Our first OperaLesque presentation was such a massive success that we wanted to bring it back with a new vibe,” Artistic Director Betsi Morrison said. “Patrons had never seen anything like it before. These are exactly the kind of performances we want to share.”
