COMING THIS SUMMER...

TO A NEIGHBORHOOD GARAGE NEAR YOU...

IT'S MUSIC! NO! IT'S THEATER! NO - IT'S GARAGE OPERA!

Our 16/17 season starts with a BANG! by bringing Garage Opera out to the suburbs again!

This year Snow White will be the story set to some of the most beautiful music the world has ever heard. BUT WAIT! There is a twist in this tale...

While this is the story of Snow White you are familiar with, in true Fresco fashion we have added a few twists, including a mild mannered "dwarf" of a man who befriends Snow White.

Fresco Opera embarked on the first season of "Garage Opera" featuring the story of Hansel and Gretel. The goal was to take opera out of the sometimes "stuffy" confines of the opera house, and instead take the production to neighborhoods in and around the Madison area.

We stage and perform a full production in a host house's garage. Fresco arrives early in the morning the day of show, sets up our staging and lighting, and performs a matinee for all who want to come see it. The response last year was overwhelming, with hundreds of families experiencing the fine art of opera for the first time, in the comfort of their neighborhood surroundings.

Garage Opera requires a portable set, keyboardist, singers and transportation to perform. Our crowd sourcing effort through Kickstarter will make our 2016 Garage Opera season of Snow White a realty.

**AND, as a bonus, if we reach a goal of $5000, we will give all who pledge individual access to behind the scenes bloopers, rehearsal and general Fresco mayhem!**

Risks and challenges

Given this is a performance done free of charge, we will be depending on Kickstarter and funding from individuals to pay for this wonderful outreach program. We have a solid budget for this, with the experience gained from 2015. However, there are contingencies such as equipment (set, transportation) failures that could add expenses. Thankfully, we have a strong network of volunteers and supporters to help us with any obstacles.
