Fun Friday – Flash Opera!

Thanks to my buddy Karin for this Friday’s inspiration and video!

As noted on Youtube, “On Saturday, April 24th, the Opera Company of Philadelphia teamed up with the Reading Terminal Market Italian Festival for a large-scale “Flash Opera” event! Over 30 members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and principal cast members of LA TRAVIATA performed the famed “Brindisi” in the aisles of Reading Terminal Market, entertaining hundreds of Philadelphians, and proving that the perfect accompaniment for all things Italian is a little Verdi! The Opera Company sincerely thanks members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and cast for generously volunteering their time and talents… BRAVI TUTTI!! LA TRAVIATA runs from May 7 – 16 at the Academy of Music. For tickets/info: 215-893-1018 / 215-893-1018 or go to”

I can only imagine the shock and amusement as people were eating their cheesesteaks or sticky buns from the Amish!

Hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend.

  1. What would have been even cooler would have been if the patrons of the market just started singing…hey, kids, let’s put on a show!
    This is a great way to get art to the public! Wish I’d been there.
