Really Spicy Opera will be presenting two pieces for its 2014-2015 season in Minnesota: Basil Considine’s opera The Frat Party and Jason Ford’s American drama Jonah Dove. The Frat Party is a comic opera that delighted Boston audiences in 2008, and Jonah Dove premiered at the 2013 Capital Fringe Festival.

The Frat Party will appear at the Rarig Thrust Stage at the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities-West Bank campus in Minneapolis, as part of the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival. Tickets will be available through the Fringe Festival website and box office. Performances run:

  • Saturday, 8/2 @ 1 PM
  • Sunday, 8/3 @ 5:30 PM
  • Monday, 8/4 @ 10 PM
  • Friday, 8/8 @ 10 PM
  • Saturday, 8/9 @ 7 PM

Jonah Dove will appear in the Twin Cities area in February 2015.

Change is in the Season!

RSOC is moving to Minneapolis! As many of you know, the production arm of the Reduced Spice Opera Company was closed for the 2012-2013 season. We are very pleased to announce that the production arm will be resuming operations in the Summer of 2014 – in Minneapolis!  As part of this move, RSOC is being rebranded as the Really Spicy Opera Company, or Spicy Opera for short.

Site Being Restored

The RSOC site received an Easter surprise this year in the form of an outage with our web hosting provider. Unfortunately, this surprise included a discovery that there was an also an issue with their site backup system. As a result, much of the Reduced Spice Opera Company website will be offline until the restore process has been completed. Thank you for your patience!
