Mercury Opera Alley Oop Calgary

Last Friday’s back alley opera event ‘Alley-Oop’ went off without a hitch, and judging by the audience’s reaction to this once in a lifetime event, it was a hit.

Ticketed audience members and bystanders alike were a buzz with ‘oohs’ ‘aahs’ and everything in between. Young and old, opera fans and passers by could not help but comment on how interesting and unique the event was.

Cameras and smartphones were high in the air as everyone hope to capture the experience, and share it with their friends in family. Since this was a one night only affair, we wanted to ensure we share the memories the best we can. The following are tweets, pictures and videos all shot at the event in hopes you can relive some of the magic.
