The Burren
247 Elm Street, Somerville, MA

Opera on Tap has put together a powerhouse line up celebrating female characters, composers, and performers to raise money and awareness for the Nasty Women movement.

Generous donations you drop into our horned helmets will go to Strong Women Strong Girls, which shores up strength in girls from under-resourced communities by surrounding them with a community of strong women.

Put on your best pantsuit and pussy hat and join us at The Burren on March 25 for an afternoon of epic music paying homage to the powerful women of opera. From Valkyrie warriors to powerful queens, we will prove once and for all that women in opera aren’t just shrinking violets and swooning ingenues. All are welcome, as our female AND male singers show us what feminism sounds like, with superhuman vocal feats that will include oft-overlooked works by female composers. The only thing anyone will be grabbing is a cold beer served up by the friendly Burren staff.
