WorD 6 Opera

Word 6 Opera

“My ideal opera would be a really short one.”
–Jack

“The storyline was way too complicated.”
–Barbara

“I never knew what opera was really like until a friend dragged me along. I’d definitely do the same if it was shorter and easy to understand.”
–Santiago

Festival WorD 6 Opera:
A festival of storied mini-operas that use no more than six words. A concept inspired by the poem attributed to Ernest Hemingway:

“For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
