San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Hotel Nikko San Francisco and Michael Feinstein will present Operation Opera, the MAC Award-winning, New York City production for a limited two-week engagement at Feinstein’s at the Nikko – July 31 through August 10, 2014. Direct from its Lincoln Center debut, Feinstein's marks the West Coast premiere of this highly successful show that delights audiences with virtuoso operatic singing and paralyzes them with laughter, while taking them on an inspiring journey into a world of music and comedy that New York critics have compared to Victor Borge.
Written and directed by Michael Mackenzie Wills, Operation Opera’s distinctive blend of vintage madness weaves well-known opera arias and their pop-culture counterparts into musical gold. Its Music Hall-style allows it to encompass everything from a night at the opera to a day with Bugs Bunny on the Warner Brothers lot. “Due to the current state of the industry, Operation Opera has been actively pursuing new audiences for opera in order to keep the art alive and give it a fresh spin to attract fans both new and old to the magic that is opera,” said Wills. “At one point, we demonstrate how accessible opera is by using baseball as a comparative platform, proving that you already understand the basis of opera and there’s nothing to be afraid of – so go and see an opera!”
Operation Opera enchants audiences with a fun-filled cross between tradition and innovation. Its edgy, sexy, song-filled modern day extravaganza of classical comedy gives the opera fan an opportunity to appreciate everything they love about opera, and it gives the novice a chance to see that we are surrounded by opera every day and it can be fun and enjoyed by all.
Operation Opera is pure, unadulterated fun!
