NEW YORK, NY, September 10th, 2016 The International Brazilian Opera Company (IBOC) is pleased to announce BOCA BOCA is moving to midtown at Snafu 28, an established neighborhood bar. The entrance fee is $20 and includes the first drink "on the house". Tickets at www.brazilianopera.com and at the door.
Attractions for the night include live performances by singers Flavia Correia and Kristin Young, and virtuoso percussionist Uka Gameiro.
BOCA BOCA stands for Brazilian Opera Carnaval. It is also a Brazilian phrase that means "spreading the news by word of mouth. The evening will fuse live operatic performances, Brazilian percussionists, electronic beats, and a playlist featuring Brazilian hits from the 1950s to now spun by DJ João.
This is a chance to go back to my DJ roots. We are producing brand new dance tracks for our opera stars, experimenting with new sounds; and it is a chance to spin some great old Brazilian music too. The fun is guaranteed. says IBOC artistic director João MacDowell.
BOCA BOCA is an IBOC volunteer initiative to support the creation of new music. Funds raised will contribute to the cost of this fall seasons concert preview of scenes from The Seventh Seal, an opera based on Ingmar Bergmans film of the same name.
The Seventh Seal (as a film) has been praised as one of the greatest works of art of the twentieth century. The possibilities of converting it into a contemporary opera are fascinating. says João MacDowell.
The performances will take place on November 10th and 12th, at Scandinavia House, continuing IBOCs relationship with the cultural institution.
BOCA BOCA will give attendees the opportunity to experience an authentic Brazilian-style celebration infused with the spirit of New York City. Rio is thousands of miles of away, but BOCA BOCA is right at your doorstep.
