OMG – It’s Opera!


Presented by Dayton Opera

Before Rent there was La Bohème… Before West Side Story there was Romeo and Juliet… and before Bugs Bunny became “The Rabbit of Seville” there was the original Barber of Seville! Created by Luke Dennis, OMG – It’s Opera! features the talents of the four young singers selected for the Artist-In-Residence Program. Students will love this fast-paced blend of something old and something new as they learn that some of their favorite musicals, cartoons and even pop songs have their roots in the opera tradition.

Available Dates: Jan 10-12, 16-24, 26-31; Feb 1-2, 5-6, 2018
