Lowbrow Opera Collective
A new opera
Friday, May 24, 2019 at 7:30PM
18th & Union
1406 18th Avenue
Lowbrow Opera Collective’s inaugural production will be the West coast premiere of a new opera titled #adulting. The story follows four roommates, recently brought together via craigslist, through their first forays into adulthood. Ruth, Tony, Bucket, and Drew come across a lot of challenges - mainly their own lack of practical life skills. The show is equal parts self deprecating humor and a giant middle finger to anyone who says millennials can’t get shit done. Mostly absurd and just a little raunchy, the opera uses a variety of musical styles to portray vignettes of modern lives, from the joy of a first apartment to the horror of a stubborn, mysterious and icky stain you find on the only couch you could afford.
