Gravity is no match for Diavolo Dance Theater's daredevils of dance as they leap, fly and spin with power, elegance and a thrill of danger in their acclaimed work Transit Space. Influenced by the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, this kinetic, high-flying work explores themes of loss and community while using skate ramps and half-pipes as set pieces to represent an urban environment. Led by Artistic Director Jacques Heim, Diavolo's an internationally renowned modern dance company of dancers, gymnasts, acrobats and athletes. Learn More

So what, exactly, is this? Well, it’s definitely not your grandmother’s opera!
Pop-Opera, or “popera” if you will, is our own fusion of the musical terms and styles of “pop” and opera as only Men Alive can bring!
Imagine Lady GaGa’s “Edge of Glory” performed as a soaring pop and opera mix, or the tender beauty of Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” done as a power ballad! How about a totally re-imagined “Anvil Chorus” as you’ve never heard before? And in this concert, you’ll hear a bit of Verdi and Gilbert & Sullivan right next to a bit of Annie Lennox and Madonna! They’ve even dared to stage a live-action version of an “operatic” animated classic you’ll instantly recognize! That’s right … they went there!
Get ready for magnificent costumes, fabulous dance numbers, incredible songs and the “Popperettas” to guide you through the whole amazing experience.
