On Saturday, March 15 at 7:30 PM the Havurah will host the Vagabond Opera, a Portland-based group that puts a modern spin on Balkan music, operatic singing, Klezmer and cabaret.
The band’s core lineup features vocalists, (including operatic tenor vocals), accordion, tenor saxophone, clarinet, cello, stand-up bass, and drums. This is not your granny’s opera, but a visceral artistic ensemble that features powerful instrumental and vocal performances coupled with a highly eclectic and theatrical experience. The group delivers passionate offerings of Bohemian cabaret for young and old. Weaving elements of Kurt Weil, Duke Ellington and Edith Piaf with absurdist flair, theatrics and an old world mood, Vagabond Opera presents the new wave of opera–lusty voices singing in 13 languages and presenting a cabaret of rich musical phrasing, sparkling lyrics and indomitable stage presence, all played with exuberance, skill and a gritty Vagabond edge. This is Opera liberated and reinvented for everyone!
