deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is pleased to present an opera / aerial circus mash-up like you’ve never seen before! Opera on Tap Boston is the local chapter of a national non-profit organization whose mission is to promote opera as a viable, living, and progressive art form by taking it out of the concert hall and putting it into venues where people least expect it. Circus 617 is a collective dedicated to highlighting Boston-area circus artists in new works of contemporary circus, created right here in the city we love. Circus 617 productions meld the spectacular, expressive physicality of circus with theatrical and musical methods of storytelling.
Together, Opera on Tap Boston and Circus 617 combine two thrilling art forms for a one-of-a-kind event in a stunning location. Featuring vocal acrobatics and physical virtuosity courtesy of some of Boston’s leading classical singers and aerialists, this performance will showcase opera, musical theater and cabaret classics paired with breathtaking original circus acts.
Aerialists: Sophia Herscu, Eileen Little, Alexander Oliva, Ellen Waylonis
Singers: Keith Eric Brinkley, David Rivera Bozón, Melynda Davis, Kathryn McKellar with Lindsay Albert (Pianist)
