The Inverse Opera creates and presents musical performances exploring the unique storytelling aspects of the classically trained voice.

Do you ever dream of rolling emerald pastures, dancing leprechauns and a pot of gold? Are you enchanted by words like "colleen", "kilkenny" and "dingle pie"? Then be sure to check out: All Things Irish. An evening of opera, art songs, folk songs and musical theater, All Things Irish will transport you to a world of love, loss, magic, whales...and, of course, Enya. So grab a glass of your favorite frothy beverage and relax while some of TIO's best-loved performers sing you into an Irish trance, where perhaps a pot-of-gold may be waiting at the end of the musical rainbow.

Tickets $15.00 General Admission

Randy Scholz is thankful for each opportunity The Inverse Opera gives him to create a place in town for the scrawny baritone! He has been seen in various TIO cabarets including last year’s Leibeslieder Waltzes at ACT. Recently, he has been seen around town in Village Theatre’s Big River (Huck) and The Producers, and Taproot Theatre’s Jeeves in Bloom. A Houston, Texas native, Randy has loved his two years in Seattle with his wife, Jessica (see below)! The Trinity University grad loves every opportunity to “bring back the baritone” (a mission of Jadd’s) and hopes the Northwest continues to foster and support budding organizations like TIO!

Jessica Spencer is a classically trained mezzo soprano who one day found out she could belt. Originally from Indiana she is enjoying her third year here in the Northwest, appearing most recently in Village Theatre’s Fiddler on the Roof and Second Story Repertory’s Zombie Prom. Jessica received a BA in Theatre Arts from Bethel College, while at Bethel Jessica sang and toured with the a cappella vocal jazz group Voices of Triumph and was a frequent Messiah soloist throughout South Bend. Jessica is happy to have found a city that allows her to merge both her classical, jazz and musical theatre voice training with her love of acting and story-telling.

Todd Hulet currently serves as the Director of Music and Education for Ovation! (http://www.ovationmtb.com) where he spends most of his time teaching four choirs and music directing the Mainstage shows (currently tackling the beast that is Les Miserables). Todd began teaching piano lessons at a very young age and quickly found his passion for enhancing the talents of others. He is also a busy educator, teaching in varied capacities from pre-K classes to adult workshops, as well as private voice, piano, and acting lessons for all ages. www.toddhulet.com

The Inverse Opera is already making a splash in the Puget Sound area with its lively cabarets that obliterate any preconceptions about opera as a pretentious art form.  The performers set themselves within feet of the audience, creating an exciting and intimate evening.  Taking advantage of the wealth of material available to the truly well-trained singer, TIO performers have given the public an opportunity to enjoy a uniquely broad spectrum of music – from Puccini to Tom Waits and everything in between!  Having this limitless approach to excellent singing ensures a parade of engaging programming for the Northwest to enjoy for years to come!
