You are invited to an adults-only education on the subtleties, the intricacies, the delicacies (and indelicacies) of opera... Men dressed as women dressed as men, courtesans, orgies, tantric love triangles and plot twists more confusing than a season of Days of our Lives. From Baroque babes through to Italian soap opera greats and certain un-listenable contemporaries, let the ladies of Opéra Risqué educate your senses with a comic revue show around the journey of opera through the ages.

After the success of their 2011 Auckland Fringe debut, Opéra Risqué is back for Fringe 2013 with a revue show based on operatic absurdity - Castrati and pants-roles and phantoms, oh my! If you think opera is only for the old, these ladies are here to prove you wrong. Come explore the naughty nature of this art form with a bit of tease and not too much sleaze.

With a cast of some of New Zealand’s finest young opera singers, cherry-picked by producers for their dulcet tones and bangin’ bods (not that that’s important but nice all the same) and incorporating dance, cabaret, satire and song, Opera 101 is a class you won’t want to wag.

Auckland Fringe runs from 15 February to 10 March 2013. For more Auckland Fringe information go to www.aucklandfringe.co.nz.
