About Opera On Tap
Opera On Tap’s mission is to promote opera as a viable, living and progressive art form deserving a place on the American cultural landscape, while promoting young professional singers and instrumentalists in their artistic development. Opera On Tap performers are allowed to let their hair down, wear jeans, drink beer, and try out new repertoire for an audience. There is no pressure for perfection. This environment gives the artists an opportunity to communicate the joy and exuberance they feel in the music by getting away from the formal atmosphere of the concert hall or educational institution. Providing the artist and the audience with room to breathe, draws in new listeners to the honesty and energy of the performances.
