Vagabond Opera: The Pocket Watch
Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta Street
July 5, 2013, 8 p.m.
A mustache touting accordion player bellows opera from a Victorian hot air balloon, while Tesla Coil's and theremin's whistle on stage. The cellos begin to duel. A belly dancing chanteuse sings of ancestors, and wails to the moon. The guitarron's been drinking. Portland Oregon's own Bohemian Gypsy cabaret ensemble Vagabond Opera are bringing their rip-roaring brand of contemporary cabaret with songs in 7 languages, top hats and notable flair. Vagabond Opera's first show with a plot. Entitled "The Pocket Watch," it's directed by Annie Rosen and Eric Stern, and includes not only the ensemble, but The Sepiatonic Dancers.
