Inspired by Portland’s food cart culture, Opera a la Cart is Portland Opera’s new mobile performance venue that will bring opera directly to the community in pop-up performances. Designed and built by architecture students at PSU, the cart will feature a fold-out stage and a “menu” of operatic specials du jour. Charismatic young singers will perform arias, duets, and ensemble pieces. Opera a la Cart will travel to food cart pods, farmers markets, college campuses, neighborhood festivals, and other locations where people gather.
Opera a la Cart visits Ponzi Vineyard's July 3rd to serenade our guests. Audience members will be asked to participate by picking the pieces to be performed by the young professionals off a chalkboard. Each performance last between 30-45 minutes and are complimentary for Ponzi tasting room guests.
