Cabaret otaku

high art in low places

welcome to cabaret otaku!

We are Denver's first alternative opera company. With us, the best local artists are throwing caution and classical stuffiness to the wind and putting the music where it belongs: right in your lap. Our focus is to take classical performance out of the concert hall and into public venues such as bars, gardens, and common gathering places. While our spaces may be casual, our approach to our craft is not. We strive to create our best work while providing a relaxed atmosphere for aficionados and new initiates alike. We invite you to pull up a chair, have a drink and enjoy the show.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, musicians of the highest caliber would gather purely for the love of performance. If you have watched peter Shaffer’s film “Amadeus,” then you have been privy to the way in which the artists of this era would play out of sheer joy and how this love of their work often resulted in passionate, spontaneous performance. By placing artistic control in the hands of the artists themselves, we are seeking a return to this tradition and a renaissance of the creative collective spirit from which our profession was born.

a form of staged entertainment, consisting mainly of skits, songs and improvisations, often in a venue serving food and drink .
