LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville is taking opera to the masses. And to the bar.
The School of Music will present “Four on Tap” at The Bard’s Town, a “pub theatre” in the Highlands, in March and April. “Four on Tap” is a series of four one-act operas performed in English by students in UofL’s School of Music. Two operas will be performed in March and two in April. Admission to all shows is free and open to the public.
“We want to make opera accessible,” said Michael Ramach, co-director of opera theatre at UofL. “Partnering with The Bard’s Town brings an opportunity for a new audience to see what our students can do and to experience music theatre in an unconventional way. People can grab a beer and a snack and watch an opera.”
