Opera On Tap To Celebrate Halloween With ‘Bucket O’Blood Cabaret’

By Francisco Salazar

Returning for the second time this year, Opera on Tap is set to bring its signature irreverent approach to opera to The Flea in its resident immersive cabaret series.

The company will present “Bucket o’Blood Cabaret” to celebrate the Halloween season. The cabaret show will be performed by Christopher Berg, Joanie Brittingham, Kacey Cardin, Matthew Curran, Rachel Duval, Seth Gilman, David Gordon, Anne Hiatt, Kamala Sankaram, Kannan Vasudevan, and Krista Wozniak and will feature an eclectic array of creepy operatically-tinged songs by Christopher Berg, Daniel Felsenfeld, Tom Lehrer, David Mallamud, Dave Malloy, One Ring Zero, Kamala Sankaram, Stephen Sondheim, Weird Al Jankovic, Ozzy Osbourne, and others.

The production will be directed by David Gordon and Cari Ann Shim Sham with costumes by Ramona Ponce and lighting design by Christopher Weston.

The event will also include the first fully-staged live performance of “The Parksville Murders,” the world’s first virtual reality opera, by composer Kamala Sankaram and writer Jerre Dye.

“Bucket O’ Blood Cabaret” will be presented on Oct. 31, Nov. 1, 2 & 3.
