Intimate Opera’s Opera on Demand shows are grab bags/revues designed with the help of audience questionnaires — “Would you like to see more opera buffa? Bouffe? Souffle?” Not an actual quote from the questionnaire, but you get the idea. This time around they’re presenting five short operas in their entirety, with total performance time at around an hour. Three pieces are by Indiana composers — John Chittum’s Cake, Bill Kloppenburg’s Fear Not the Robot and Scott Perkins’ Charon. Also included are the world’s shortest opera, Peter Reynolds’ The Sands of Time (at 3 minutes and 34 seconds) and Samuel Barber’s Hand of Bridge.
Price: $15 adult, $8 student
