POP returns to the comfortable 350 seat El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood with another crazy spin on a Mozart classic. Unlike any Magic Flute you’ve ever seen, this one is going to be “super”. Papageno, Tamino, and the gang are transported to the land of 90s video games with a new English libretto by Josh Shaw and Scott Levin. With two Sunday matinees and a kid friendly setting, this a perfect opera to bring the entire family to see.
So what if... what if a brash American naval officer and a young Japanese girl met and fell in love? How would they communicate? (Certainly not in Italian!) In POP’s most ambitous production to date, Artistic Director Josh Shaw’s long-time dream of a bilingual Madama Butterfly comes to life at The Aratani Theatre in Little Tokyo. All Japanese roles will be sung in Japanese (by Japanese-American artists) and all American roles will be sung in English. This is a co-production with Opera in the Heights (Houston).
Gilbert & Sullivan’s most enduring work and one of POP’s most popular productions returns for three weekends of performances at The Highland Park Ebell Club. What could possibly make this production better than POP’s sold-out run in 2013? Food and wine of course! Table seating will be available for all performances and of course you can expect new updated lyrics for all your G&S favorites.
POP’s trademark production is now a holiday tradition. The Hipsters will once again descend on Highland Park to bring Puccini’s most popular opera from 1830s Paris to 2019 Los Angeles. What new twists and updates will this production have? It’s too early to say, but rest assured up-to-the-minute references, digs, and jokes will pop up throughout the show. If you’ve never seen this hit production, you don’t know what you’re missing. If you’ve seen it before, come see what the new class of hipsters has to offer in 2019.
