Think opera is just for stuffy bluehairs or Fifth Avenue socialites? Those who only know the stereotype of opera as the “fat lady singing” in a Viking helmet may not realize just how diverse, modern, and subversive an art form opera can be—and always has been. Come out and have your eyes (and ears) opened wide! The evening opens with NYC's alt-diva Sarah Screams and her all-star team of op-erotic burlesque performers, followed by scenes from ‘The Enchanted Organ: A Porn Opera’. The latest and edgiest opera from composer Gordon Beeferman and librettist Charlotte Jackson, it celebrates sexuality and satirizes the porn industry, all while spoofing the Classics in true burlesque style.
The entire evening will be hosted by Chris Harder, the one-of-a-kind burlesque performer, stripper, go-go dancer, actor, and porn star.
So come join us as we shine a new light on the Nitty-Gritty-titty side of opera. Sit back, have a cocktail, and let the shenanigans commence!
Our last show at Drom in September was quickly sold out… so buy your tickets soon!
