“If you’re looking for a theatrical alternative to the staged equivalent of a sugary, mass-produced holiday cookie, you probably can’t do better than Viva’s Holiday...  Go see it!” – Megan Burbank, Portland Mercury

“A mostly quiet, touching, intimate family drama.” – Brett Campbell, Oregon ArtsWatch

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO CREATE AN AWESOME RECORD!

Original opera is a rare enough thing - but especially, original opera that tells a local story by an independent author, is lyrical and funny and moving, explores a universal theme of family disconnect, and confronts sex-worker shaming and patriarchal puritanism. Viva's Holiday is all of these things. Based on Magic Gardens: The Memoirs of Viva Las Vegas, the opera is not just theater - it's wonderful music, being performed by a fantastic troupe of singers, the same who recorded our previous Cult of Orpheus album which the press called "fervently beautiful."

Please donate today - we are going into the studio Nov. 5th and 7th! We still need to raise at least $2500 to cover all costs.

Listen to an All Classical Portland Radio interview  with Christopher and Viva (Northwest Previews with Andrea Murray, 2015)

Visit the Viva's Holiday webpage  for a longer description of the work and some live performance samples.

The total expenses we are covering include:
- singer and instrumentalist fees for rehearsals and recording sessions
- rehearsal space rental
- recording studio rental, sound engineering, mixing and mastering
- CD duplication (limited run)
- vinyl mastering and pressing (limited run)
- record release concert (performers and support staff)
- marketing (handbill and poster printing, online advertising)

This crowdfunding effort is just a small part of our total funding plan. Through major patrons, investment by the composer, and a successful fundraising event we have already raised over $11,000. We are just $2500 short of our minimum goal to fully cover recording costs - please help us get there.

We cannot do it without your help. Thank you for giving!
