    *What exactly is Gonzo Opera?

    1)      It is real opera -- not musical theater and not a parody of the genre.  It uses beautiful classically-trained voices and allows them to demonstrate all the marvelous attributes of traditional vocal technique. The Gonzo style is full of melodymemorable melody that shows off the voices in the best possible light.  But

    2)      Gonzo Opera takes as its subject matter outrageous comedy/satire, heretofore completely foreign to opera. It is as contemporary as the movies. No pathetic, dying heroines here. Shannon Wheeler’s Too Much Coffee Man comic was made into an opera with great success. This was the first of the Gonzo operas.

     The ultimate goal of presenting this new enlightened format is the re-invention of the operatic form in our times.  By making it relevant and relatable in satiric contexts, we introduce the magnificent effect of opera to new audiences who may never have realized they could enjoy the genre in a popular form.
