For those of you who are unfamiliar with opera, here’s the biggest thing you have to know about the reputedly stuffy art form: It’s all about sex or death, from Carmen to Salome to Don Giovanni. The Seattle chapter of Opera on Tap is diving into this saucy truth with their next show, busting out opera’s most salacious arias this Tuesday, March 29. Join them for a night of “High Notes, Low Morals” at the High Dive in Fremont and get all the sex appeal without the suits.

Performers include Ksenia Popova, Melissa Plagemann, Marcus Shelton and Ryan Bede, with the wizardry of Beth Kirchoff at the piano.
