I hate opera. I know, I know. Why the heck did I see this show? Well the burlesque angle of course.
So you hate opera as well? Not content to hear songs in a language that makes it impossible to understand? Think you may be moved to tears like all the people in movies are when they see an opera? Bored? Some people hear the word opera and run the other way. I mean opera at the fringe?!
Well, let me tell you something. A little secret. Opera is phenomenal in underwear. If you love opera, go see Opera Ooh-La-La.
But if you hate opera... Go see opera Ooh-La-La anyway. If you like skimpy clothes and great singing, go see it. Who doesn't like sexy women dressed scantily.
This show gave me a whole new perspective on opera. It opened my closed eyes and made me a believer. I found myself following along with the program and learning new things about these pieces. I even went home and showed a friend who loves opera the program and told her my favorite pieces.
Not much burlesque, but still some of the hottest most talented women in Kansas City singing to you.
Open your heart and open your mind and you may just learn to love opera. But either way, you'll enjoy this show.
