Portland Opera's Marriage of Figaro Cast Participates In #askavocalist

To celebrate the start of National Opera Week, the entire cast of The Marriage of Figaro will participate in a world-wide Twitter event called #askavocalist during rehearsal tonight. 

 

Twitter followers can ask any question of our cast between 7p-10p.  We will solicit answers from our principle singers, chorus and studio artists - basically whoever is off stage at the time and wants to respond.  Their answers will be posted from Portland Opera's twitter account.  The tweet will attribute whichever singer answers, so followers know who is responding.  For Twitter fans who specifically want to hear from Portland Opera singers, make sure to use the hash tag #askavocalist, as well as tagging @portlandopera.

 

Follow us on Twitter to join in the fun!

 

About #askavocalist:

The concept is simple: vocalists (sopranos, mezzos, tenors, baritones, basses, and yes, countertenors and contraltos) make time available to answer questions on Friday, October 28; Twitter followers tweet their burning questions and the musicians answer. It is an opportunity to connect musicians with their audience and share the stories of their musical love and passion, 140 characters at a time. The conversations between fans and musicians can be followed on Twitter by using the hash tag #askavocalist
