Doors open at 7pm, Music and Performance at 8pm

at LoftOpera
101 Varick Avenue
$30-40

From LoftOpera: “The way opera has normally been done is more and more unsustainable. Most opera experiences are so expensive that the tickets we can afford don’t make for a very enjoyable show. Not to mention the obsession with who’s there, what the person sitting next to you is wearing, and how much it cost.

We’re changing all that by reclaiming opera in our own culture, while still putting the artform and the artistic integrity at the center. We’re making opera affordable; we’re making it immersive, and interesting; we’re making music in places new to opera and familiar to the audiences that opera needs; all while hiring the artists who are going to carry the genre into the future.

To sum it all up, we’re making opera for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re young, old, rich, broke, an opera newbie or an opera queen. You don’t need to break the bank for a front row seat, and you don’t need to know any arias to enjoy the show.”

LoftOpera presents Mozart’s tale of love and deception, Così Fan Tutte through Sunday, Sept 25th. Tickets available here.
