Wortham Center Presents
The Opera Locos
April 3, 2022 at 7 p.m.
Five eccentric opera singers take the stage for an unforgettable (and unexpectedly hilarious) evening of physical comedy and repertoire from the greatest composers of their genre. Taking some of the most well-known operatic hits — music from The Magic Flute, The Barber of Seville, La Traviata, Turandot and more — and combining them with a bit of clownery and well-known pop classics. Throughout the performance, this eclectic ensemble reveals their hidden passions, personalities and desires, many of which bring about unpredictable and often side-splitting consequences. This fresh and original take on opera brings a new perspective to the art form, while, at the same time, maintaining the international high standards for technique and artistic discipline.
The Opera Locos was awarded the Best Musical at the Max Awards for the Performing Arts in 2019. The Max Awards are considered to be the most important performing arts awards in Spain, comparable to the Tony Awards.
