The last place you’d expect to see an opera diva is in a dingy dive bar that once served Hot Pockets. But that’s exactly the point of Opera on Tap, a national nonprofit trying to loosen the corset on highbrow art and bring those talented tenors to the corner pub. The Seattle branch celebrates Blue Moon Tavern’s 78th anniversary tonight with some of owner Gus’s favorite arias from Carmen, La bohème, Threepenny Opera, and a little Wagner (“so bring your swords and spears!”).

Megan Chenovick and Daniel Oakden (both of Inverse Opera) are slated to perform, along with Sarah Mattox (Seattle Opera), Rob McPherson, Ksenia Popova, Ryan Bede, Kim Giordano, and David McDade on the keys.
