Opera on Tap taps the popular, tonight at Bender's

The opera singers who regularly let their hair down at Opera on Tap, the up-close-and-personal monthly bar night at Bender's Tavern, will further reveal their inner selves during tonight's installment, the Musical Month of March. And though opera is inherently musical, this "musical" refers to what blossoms on Broadway rather than at the Met.

Beginning at 8 p.m., some of our local warblers -- singers who are perhaps more familiar with the Ellie than the Met -- will be belting tunes from Kurt Weill and Stephen Sondheim, along with favorites from shows like Ragtime and Little Shop of Horrors, in operatic tones. Wonder if they'll break any glasses?

By the way, if show ditties don't ring your chimes, you might want to take in Opera on Tap in April: The theme is What the Fach!?, and that's all we're saying. 7:30 p.m. April 11 at Shine in Boulder and 8 p.m. April 26 at Bender's. Admission is always $8 to $10; visit Opera on Tap online for more details.
