The Opera (Sort of) Returns to Hamilton with “Whose Opera Is It Anyway?”


At the Hamilton Fringe Festival

HAMILTON – Inspired by the famous TV show, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, “Whose Opera Is It Anyway?” is a hilarious marriage of opera and comedy using short-form, game based improv that has professional opera singers singing about the craziest and most ridiculous things. Our singers will create improvised operas out of fortune cookie messages, commercial jingles or even someone’s text conversation! It’s all based on audience suggestions, and each show is different from the last.
