Opera Colorado presents its second annual fall cabaret, Sideshow!, at the Studio Loft at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the Denver Performing Arts Complex (14th Street between Curtis and Champa Streets) on November 1, 2 and 3, 2012, as part of Denver Arts Week. The ridiculous love triangle of Doctor Gregg, Lola Markham, the anesthetist, and her fiancé, Donald Hopewell, plays out in the stereotypical TV soap opera hospital setting in Douglas Moore's Gallantry. Experience this 1950's episode live, complete with commercial interruptions for Billy Boy Wax and Lochinvar Soap by the announcer. After intermission, the cast changes gears and presents two sets of timeless cabaret and jazz favorites from William Bolcom and Cole Porter, including "Over the Piano," "The Last Lousy Moments of Love," "Night and Day," "I Get a Kick Out of You," and more.
Shows begin at 7:30 pm and will run approximately 90 minutes. Cocktails and light appetizers prepared by Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House will be available for purchase before the show and at intermission. Cabaret table seating for parties of 4 ($45 per person) and theater seating ($40 per person) are available online at www.operacolorado.org/sideshow, through Ticketmaster online and by phone (800.982.ARTS), or by calling Opera Colorado Ticket Services at 303.468.2030.
