Do you dream of becoming an opera singer?

If you’re in Montreal during the Montreal Highlights Festival and for the upcoming Nuit Blanche, your dream of singing opera can come true!  Opera Karaoke, a special activity presented by The Opéra de Montréal and The KARAOKE Channel will be offiering you the opportunity to sing  the most beautiful operatic arias karaoke-style.   The STM (Montreal Metro) will be providing the “stage” at the Place des Arts metro station (in front of the Frederic Back artwork) starting at  11 p.m. on Saturday February 27th and continuing until 3 a.m. on February 28th.

Opera Karaoke, an all-night classical vocal experience

The Atelier lyric singers will set the tone for this premiere exclusive event, singing a selection of operatic arias in the style of Verdi, Bizet, Puccini, Mozart, Saint-Saëns and Rossini from works such as Carmen, Aida, La bohème, Tosca and others. The same selection of songs will be available for anyone to sing, solo or with a group of friends, giving you the chance to channel your inner diva.  The KARAOKE Channel is proud to provide high quality karaoke instrumental music with lyrics that are displayed in time with the music on a television screen.

Get a taste of the Atelier lyric singers as they sing in this video, recorded in the metro preceding an Opera de Montreal show earlier this year.
