Enjoy the newest video from our informational series featuring Tacoma Opera’s General Director, Noel Koran. There is no doubt that this past year has been full of challenges and countless changes as we all have endured the COVID-19 pandemic. In this video, we take some time to reflect on how the pandemic affected Tacoma Opera and the performing arts as a whole, as well as our plans for the future of Tacoma Opera. We are hopeful, and so very thankful for your gracious and continued support over the course of this last year to help keep opera alive and well in our community, even during uncertain times.

Tacoma Opera Presents #Adulting by Lowbrow Opera Collective

Tacoma Opera is thrilled to present #Adulting by Lowbrow Opera Collective, one of the region’s newest groups of ragtag opera singers, who are hellbent on doing opera their own way. Lowbrow Opera Collective is dedicated to reviving the art of opera by presenting new works that are approachable and accessible to a diverse audience, by providing exciting opportunities for emerging artists, and by collaborating with like-minded organizations.

About #Adulting:

Follow the journey of four roommates, recently brought together via craigslist, through their first forays into adulthood. Ruth, Tony, Bucket, and Drew come across many challenges – mainly their own lack of practical life skills. Through self-deprecating humor, absurdity, and just a little raunchiness, #Adulting portrays vignettes of modern lives, from the joy of a first apartment to the horror of an icky stain you find on the only couch you could afford.
