A Watch Party like no other…

Lucky Penny Opera Decorative Divider

5 teams of artists have sweat, cried, stayed up all night and refrained from breathing on each other for one whole weekend to bring you the experience of a lifetime…

On January 22nd at 6pm, the artists gathered and received a prompt package containing a random sound, a piece of text and an object. For the next 48 hours, they worked together to write, learn, rehearse, direct, film, and edit a completely new short opera from scratch.

Who are these masochists?  What did they come up with?  Are they still alive? There’s only one way to find out!

Come to the epic Watch Party Thursday, January 28th at 6pm PST.

Your vote will decide who wins audience favourite and walks away with a prize worth $100

Presented in partnership with re:Naissance Opera and IndieFest 2020.
