Chicago Opera Theatre announces YouTube contest

 

 

This year’s YouTube contest theme is “How do YOU make opera less ordinary?” – the top three videos will win subscriptions to the 2010 Spring Festival Season and all runners up will get passes to a final dress rehearsal. ( Note: This is the perfect opportunity for theater fans to interpret an opera and get to see a Chicago Opera Theater production, or three productions if they are one of the winners).

COT is giving you the chance to show the world how YOU make opera less ordinary.
Send them a video of yourself and/or your friends re-enacting any one of the storylines from any of the operas in COT’s 2010 Spring Festival Season (a synopsis for each opera is available on the upper right corner of this webpage) – the 3 top vote-getters will win subscriptions to their 2010 spring season.  The submission deadline is April 9th.
