A collision of cultures as Opera Tampa performs at Mayor’s Food Truck Fiesta
Tampa, FL – (February 5, 2013) – When you think food trucks, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Opera? Um… well, maybe not, but Downtown Tampa is getting ready for this unique collision of cultures as Opera Tampa performers take the stage at Lykes Gaslight Square Park during the Mayor’s Food Truck Fiesta tomorrow!
What:Opera Tampa members to perform at the Mayor’s Food Truck Fiesta
Where:Lykes Gaslight Square Park, 410 N. Franklin Street, Downtown Tampa
When: Wednesday, February 6, 11am to 2pm; Members of Opera Tampa will perform two 45-minute sets, beginning at 11:30am.
Tampa Downtown Partnership is a proud partner with the City of Tampa, bringing you the Mayor’s Food Truck Fiesta on the first Wednesday of each month. Bringing opera to the food truck event was an idea the Partnership staff got after witnessing an opera flash mob at an industry conference a few months ago. Opera Tampa was on board as soon as they heard about this idea. Opera Tampa first surprised attendees at a recent Downtown Sunday Market and now will perform at the food truck fiesta. People were stunned and thrilled.
Tomorrow’s performance is not being kept a secret, so downtown workers won’t miss the opportunity (or is that opera-tunity) to enjoy this incredible performance. But do watch for other potential opera flash mob scenes to come! You just never know where they may pop up.
Opera Tampa has begun its 18th season, performing at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. New this season, they will perform under the direction of world-renowned director and conductor, Daniel Lipton!
