Four Singers Walk Into A Bar – Columbia
Columbia Operatic Laboratory presents a COLab original comedic work titled Four Singers Walk Into a Bar.
Nominated for the 2022 Free Times Best of Columbia – Best Production, Four Singers Walk Into A Bar tells the story of four singers, and their egos, as they walk into a bar to try to pick up dates. As they sing in foreign languages, there is a handy-dandy Narrator to provide an English translation (with some additional, perhaps biased, commentary) as operatic absurdity ensues.
This send-up of operatic tropes features music by Mozart, Puccini, Johann Strauss, and more, with an original script by Maria Beery, is perfect for both opera aficionados and skeptics alike.
