What Patrons Are Saying About Petite Opera Productions
“Loved the opera. Totally awesome, dude!” – Bianca (middle school student who has seen 2 performances already, but is begging her mother to take her to every performance.)
“What a great show! I always thought opera was stuffy, but this was really fun! I want all my friends to see it.” – Emily (high school student)
“I didn’t know what to expect, because I only know a little about opera. But ‘Al Fresco’ was incredibly funny, and the performers were excellent. My friends, who are opera regulars, were laughing practically the whole time. They caught jokes I didn’t, so I need to see it again, just to catch a few more!” – John (a 40-something entertainment lover)
“‘Al Fresco’ was so entertaining, clever and hilarious! Petite Opera took well-known songs and themes, put them in a modern-day context, and had me chuckling the whole time! The characters are so vibrant! The performers demonstrate such incredible vocal and comic talent, and the show is outstanding. It truly is a great package that everyone should see.” – Teresa (activities director at a senior center facility)
