Millan & Faye Present: The Opera!
In a special appearance at Artword Artbar, opera comedienne Kyra Millan and her music partner Tina Faye invite the audience into the world of opera through a brilliantly funny, whirlwind concert full of operatic favourites and well-known classical tunes, as well sketches and improv that celebrate the sublime and sublimely ridiculous elements that make up opera.
