Welcome to the official page of the #bloodbucketchallenge for Opera on Tap!
SO WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Opera on Tap is producing a horror-themed cabaret of operatic music at The Flea the week of Halloween, while at the same time October is our national awareness month.

Follow the simple recipe below for making fake blood, then dump it on yourself. Don’t forget to video yourself doing it! Maybe plan on wearing something you don’t care about too much. Once you are happy with how your ‘play on the movie Carrie’ has turned out, share it on your favorite social media channels with the following text, links and hashtags:
“I’ve just participated in the #bloodbucketchallenge for #operaontap! Now it’s your turn! You have 48 hours to comply or forfeit by way of charitable financial donation to Opera on Tap or purchase of tickets to the Bucket o’ Blood Cabaret”
THEN… nominate 2 or more of your friends or foes to participate as well.

WHO’S OPERA ON TAP?
Opera on Tap was born in 2005 at Freddy’s Bar and Backroom in Brooklyn and incorporated in 2006 to promote opera as a viable, living and progressive art form and to support the developing artists who continue to keep the art form alive. What began as a small monthly gathering of ambitious, classically trained singers looking for more performance opportunities, has grown into a producing organization that has gained a loyal audience base and national recognition as an innovative force on the classical music scene. Through its Chapter program, which now has 25 vibrant national (and international) chapters, OOT has created a large network of performers, creators, and supporters. Beyond singing in bars and other alternative venues to concert halls, Opera on Tap creates Playground Operas with elementary-school-aged public school students and commissions and produces cutting-edge new works of opera.
