I’ve done a lot of cool things in New York. Last night’s LoftOpera would immediately get a place in the top 7, if I actually kept a list.
It was opera (Don Giovanni) performed by super talented people (both singers and musicians) in a loft (in Gowanus).
Not only was the entire concept cool (cheap drinks before and after, the sense that you’re attending something different and special), but the production itself was fantastic–and funny. It was one of those events where, throughout it, you feel lucky to have happened to see it pop up on the obscure mailing list you’re on.
If you want to do a super cool thing you’ll want to tell your friends about, you should see LoftOpera. Last night was the final performance, but I hear they’re trying to keep it going with new operas in the future.
In the meantime, if you want to read about it and be disappointed you didn’t find out about it in time to enjoy it, go here.
