The Greatest Show On Earth! (TM)

Thrills!  Chills!  Laughter!  Beauty!

"Big Top" is the whole enchilada.  You got your beautiful women, your freaks, your daredevils and some clowns making this entertainment experience complete.

Of course we are talking about opera.

Did you think we were talking about a circus?  We were actually talking about both.  Let's face it, opera and the circus are like Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey - they go together perfectly.  Both are "larger than life" in terms of production.
Fresco's Big Top Opera will be an operatic performance that is contained in a circus setting: Arias performed over circus themed backdrops.  We will have a fire eater, knife thrower, bearded lady, half man / half woman, animal tamer and clowns - just to name a few.  Our musicians will be performing operatic arias under the Fresco Big Top in the Promenade Hall at the Overture Center in Madison, while at the same time thrilling you with the many spectacles of a circus!

Will this be the greatest show on earth?  We would have to say "no" for the simple fact that we are not allowed to legally say "yes" (notice the trademark).  But unlike P.T. Barnum, we don't think you will feel like a sucker if you spend a couple of hours with us on September 30th or October 1st.

In fact, we can state very confidently that this will be the greatest operatic performance staged in a circus setting that you will ever have seen!
