Traditional opera has sometimes struggled to find its place on America's cultural landscape, in part due to the public's conception of it as snobbish and stuffy. Unlike more casual art forms such as rock 'n' roll or blue-jean portraiture, opera is often associated with high prices, fancy dress, and subdued behavior. Opera on Tap promotes opera as a progressive art form that can captivate people of any background by presenting drama-driven music without pretension in local bars and restaurants.
An all-volunteer organization, Opera on Tap has opened the eyes of audiences unacquainted with the visceral thrill of acoustic vocal performances, transforming the notion of opera from stodgy and inaccessible to casual and entertaining. Its free performances enrich the local cultural fabric, exposing mainstream listeners to the excitement of a beautifully bellowed note or confusingly tangled love triangle, and provide budding vocalizers and tunesmiths with opportunities to spread their wings creatively. Although the organization has cultivated a reliable fan base, it continues to run each show on donations and is forced to borrow a piano for each performance, adding to the drama of getting the show on stage.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Opera on Tap enrich the cultural landscape by giving local audiences a comfortable point of entry into the world of opera. If G-Team members raise $700, Opera on Tap can purchase a new keyboard to use at its many gigs in the Atlanta area. Each additional $10 raised will go toward an amp and upgraded keyboard. G-Team members can experience Opera on Tap in person by attending its upcoming performance on Thursday, April 14, in Buckhead.
