RAP Jukebox Live

Friday, April 12, 2019

Join us for a night of opera highlights and popular tunes curated by the audience and sung by MN Opera Resident Artists. Come to the pre-show cocktail hour to vote for the arias of your choice!

          

How It Works

Each singer lists four arias in their jukebox, and the selections with the most votes and highest value are included in the performance. The result is a one-of-a-kind concert encompassing a surprising range of styles and composers.

FAQ

Is this a seated dinner event?
No, heavy hors d’oeuvres and self-service food stations will be available.

How does the voting work?
Each ticket or sponsorship purchase includes voting tokens for each guest. Music selections will be chosen by most popular (token count) and highest grossing (raised amount with cash and checks in each box).

Voting will take place during registration from 6-7pm.

Will there be an auction component?
Yes, guests will have the option to bid on one of the top three arias that did not make it to the first round of the performance. A single song will be performed for the highest bidder.

What will the afterparty entail?
