Fort Worth Opera wants to get drunk with you at Opera Shots
You don't even have to wear a suit.
FORT WORTH Ever thought of going to the opera, but then realized you’d never be let in because you don’t own anything nice enough to wear? The Fort Worth Opera has your informal invitation into the scene on Thursday, November 1, when the organization hosts Opera Shots, an evening full of music void of dress code.
The event is reminiscent of the Dallas Opera's free showing of an opera at Cowboys Stadium in April 2012. The Fort Worth Opera has hosted Opera Shots before.
Several up-and-coming singers from the Fort Worth Opera Studio and 2013 Festival Chorus will perform a comedic piece called Figaro’s Last Hangover at the Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The piece, composed by industry veteran Patrick Soluri, is one in a series of hilarious productions sure to appeal to anybody with a sense of humor. Soluri is both an Opera America recognized composer and a part of the Fort Worth Opera’s 2013 Frontiers New Works Showcase.
Opera Shots is free to attend, and Live Oak Music Hall will have tons of drinks specials. The Fort Worth Opera will also be giving away prizes including a pair of tickets to FWOpera's 2013 Festival, plus you’ll get to see talent that is blossoming right in your hometown. Talk about catering to the public — where else have you had the chance to enjoy opera in jeans and a T-shirt while taking tequila shots? RSVP is encouraged though not required. You can RSVP by phone or online here.
