Opera on tap!

New Orleans, LA (September 28, 2007) —The New Orleans Opera has signed up with the Brooklyn company Opera On Tap as its first satellite group. In 2005 Opera On Tap was created by its Managing Divas as a performance outlet for emerging classical musicians in the fashion of the New York rock or jazz gig. It was an affordable way to have fun together and work on classical music at the same time! The first performance took place in June 2005 at Freddy’s Bar and Backroom in Brooklyn, New York. The show was an enormous success and a revelation for its organizers. In that one performance it became very clear that there was, and continues to be, an untapped audience starved for intense, acoustic, musical experiences. Since that first performance Opera On Tap has performed as many as 6 times every month to large audiences at various alternative venues for classical music in Brooklyn and Manhattan. A growing list of venues includes bars, street festivals, parks, theaters, and community centers.

The home bar for Opera On Tap – New Orleans is The Rusty Nail, located at 1100 Constance Street in the CBD. (Across the street from the Cotton Mill – formerly the Mermaid Lounge) The Rusty Nail mixes up a delicious drink, its namesake, with a full bar. It also serves beer on tap. The new kitchen is ready to make you a panini or a wrap with chips with salsa.

Each Opera On Tap – New Orleans is scheduled for 7-8:30PM and the dates are as follows:
October 10, 2007;
November 7, 2007;
March 5, 2008
April 9, 2008.
Mark your calendars for this fun free night out!

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
