NYC's alt-opera diva Sarah Screams presents an evening of burlesque and opera, featuring selections from "The Enchanted Organ: A Porn Opera." The evening's entertainment will kick off with a set of burlesque acts by Sarah Screams and her all-star team of Op-Erotic performers, including Dangrrr Doll, Cornelius Loy, Topher Bousquet and Matt Dallow. The second set will showcase both old favorites and all-new material from "The Enchanted Organ," the original burlesque opera by composer Gordon Beeferman and librettist Charlotte Jackson, with Beth Greenberg, formerly of New York CIty Opera, directing. The entire evening will be hosted by the "boylesk" performer, impresario, and porn star Chris Harder.
If you missed The Enchanted Organ's preview performance at Dixon Place, or if you're simply curious about opera-burlesque, then come on out for a night of musical shenanigans as we showcase the "nitty-gritty-titty" side of opera. Those who only know the cliche of "the fat lady singing” in a Viking helmet may be surprised at just how diverse, edgy, and modern an art form opera can be—and always has been!
