Doors open at 7:30. All seats are general admission — sit where you like! Show should run 100 minutes total. There will be one intermission. Informal meet-and-greet with the artists and winning composers to follow.
This performance will be professionally recorded as a gift to the winning composers. Although we love seeing little faces light up when they hear operatic singing, we kindly ask that our audience be sensitive to the live recording when considering whether to bring young children.
If you choose the “GA for me, a gift for you” option, THANK YOU for the $10 contribution in addition to your ticket price! One Ounce Opera will be in touch via email to ask which organization(s) you choose as the recipient of your gifted ticket(s), and if/how you’d like your name to appear in the program. If you purchase more than one ticket at this level, you may choose a different non-profit for each ticket!
One Ounce Opera is a sponsored project of Austin Creative Alliance. This performance is funded in part by the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division.
