About the Event

Opera Revue has been described as

"Surprisingly  relaxed and a heck of a lot of fun, spectators cheered and hollered,  For an opera purist, this might sound sacrilegious. But could events  like this be opera’s greatest hope for survival?"

Wrote the Toronto Star

“Pretty good stuff”

CityTV News

“Opera  Revue is establishing a reputation for bringing opera into what might  be called non-traditional settings, including opera + burlesque shows,  and performances at breweries and distilleries in the area. Bringing  opera to the people means making it relevant” Ludwig VanToronto

“Hilarious and witty reimagined lyrics about hot-button political-social commentary with Mozart underneath”

Music by Mozart, Puccini, Verdi, Kurt Weil, Sinatra, and Abba

Ruckus  on the Road is a 5 person vocal variety show of classical operatic  arias and ensembles with a few modern hits for flavor.

it's not like going to a stuffy opera (or what you think that would be).

If you aren't an opera buff, don't worry-no background knowledge is needed.

Sure, you might get an extra joke or two if you know the Italian lines from a famous Verdian quartet.  But the show is still incredibly accessible to the operatically uninformed.

Ruckus  challenges the genre to expand its borders and break its self-imposed  "rules," ( we have WAY more fun ones worked into the show ) and truly  see where the art form can go if it would just let the elitism and  snobbery die.
