These kind of "flash" opera performances have been happening all over the world! Have you seen any of Chicago Opera Theater's Pop-Up Opera performances in Chicago during National Opera Week?

Opera video

Love this video from the event at Macy's in Philadelphia. It begs the questions, if all of these people at Macy's are having such a wonderful time, I wonder how many of them go to see the opera when its fully staged? According to the NEA, opera is about the least popular art form there is. Do "stunts" like this help?

My fav

I saw a bunch of Chicago Opera Theater's "Pop-Up Opera" last year and loved them. Cheers to COT! Although I gotta say my favorite is this one in Valencia. Verdi's "Traviata" in Mercado Central de Valencia and champagne for everyone! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds8ryWd5aFw
