   Adventuresome culture buffs have a new experience waiting as Hawai‘i Opera Theatre unveils its first production in Kaka‘ako.  The warehouse space that houses Night Market and other events will be transformed to tell a particularly contemporary tale of deceit.  HPR’sNoeTanigawa reports.

Hawai‘i Opera Theatre presents “Siren Song”, six performances only through March 29th.  Street Grindz vendors will offer refreshments.  

Acoustics in the warehouse are quite good, the voices in this production are well wedded to the score, and the performances are moving.  As Diana, Honolulu’s Rachel Schutz takes no prisoners.  The chamber orchestra offers a spirited performance under the direction of Vincent de Kort.  

Honolulu, this is a production to be proud of.

If you ever wondered how Manti Te'o could have been such a dummy, this opera might explain it.
