Madison Opera’s first ever Blogger Night at the Opera will see five local writers armed with lap-tops reporting live from the Overture Center. Participating bloggers have been invited to set-up in the lobby and share their thoughts and observations on the entire opera experience, starting before the show and continuing during the two intermissions of Carmen. For some, Carmen might be old-hat, and for others, it will be their first experience with live opera, so things are sure to get interesting!
Here’s the list of participating blogs:
- Dane101.com: The collaborative blog for Madison, WI (Blogger: Maddie Greene)
- The Well-Tempered Ear (Blogger: Jacob Stockinger)
- The Lost Albatross (Blogger: Emily Mills)
- Liberal Arts (Blogger: Katie Vaughn)
The aims of Blogger Night are pretty simple. We want to reach new audiences by bringing fresh voices into the conversation about opera. On the flip side, we want to bring new media outlets to the attention of our audience (hence the blogger station in the lobby). It should be a fun experience for everyone involved!
And of course, just because your name is not on the list above doesn’t mean you can’t blog about Carmen. If Twitter is your thing, join the conversation on opening night under #MadOpera.
