Denver, CO, November 1, 2022 — Hear that? They’re playing your jam! There are so many toe-tapping, hum-along tunes from operas that are just a seamless part of our lives. (Think—“Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit!”) For their annual fundraiser show and silent auction, Opera on Tap Colorado brings you operatic greatest hits, some of the best bops of all time, to stage at Enigma Bazaar in west Denver—all to fundraise for a unique cause. Every dollar raised supports scholarships for local singers and enables Opera on Tap Colorado to produce monthly shows, pop-up events and other innovative operatic experiences in accessible spaces at affordable prices.

“If you’re looking to experience something new and different, this show will surprise you in all the best ways,” says Opera on Tap Co-Manager Margaret Siegrist. “This is our first live fundraiser show since Covid, and you better believe we’re ready to burst out singing (for our supper)!”
The event lineup includes a two-hour bar show, an impressive silent auction and the announcement of an upcoming landmark project. In more than 10 years producing in the Denver area, Opera on Tap Colorado has been widely recognized for creating fresh and innovative performances like the circus arts-studded “Variety Show” in April 2022 or Covid-era TikTok operas project.

About Opera on Tap Colorado
Opera on Tap was founded in New York City in 2005 when a few singers, out for a drink in Brooklyn, wondered what it would be like if classical singers could gig at local bars like bands do. Opera on Tap has since grown to boast chapters in cities across the country—including in Colorado! Opera on Tap Colorado brings opera to unexpected places throughout the state, offering audiences exceptional music by outstanding singers and giving professional singers the opportunity to sing regularly in public in a welcoming, supportive atmosphere. While casual and even raucous, Opera on Tap is not an open mic. Monthly shows focus on a loose topical theme, and singers choose music they love that ties in. It’s like an operatic sampler plate! Audiences can expect top notch performers singing music from great operas and musical works—often with a drink in hand. The organization is also a passionate champion of new opera and innovative performances/collaborations of all kinds.
