Pop-Up Operas and the French Market

Opera is popping up everywhere!

In celebration of National Opera Week in Chicago (October 28-November 6), Chicago Opera Theatre is hosting several “pop-up” operas throughout the city, including at the Chicago French Market, Macy’s on State Street, the Art Institute of Chicago and at CTA stations. A “pop-up” is the opera’s version of a flash mob: free, short performances of opera classics in a public location.

Today, November 2, The Chicago French Market is the site of the pop-up opera at 12:30. Stop by for a mid-day treat of great food and great opera!

This is from one of last year's pop-up operas...look out for them!

Future performances are a well-kept secret, so make sure to follow @ChicagoOpera on Twitter for information about up-coming pop-ups. If you are lucky enough to see a performance, make sure to include #popupopera in your tweet to be entered in a contest for the Chicago Opera Theatre!
