    Viva's Holiday VINYL PARTY (Fundraiser)

    8:00 pm Jade Lounge - 2348 SE Ankeny St., Portland, OR, 97214

    Have you heard? We are making an album of Viva’s Holiday: An Opera in One Act! This work is a local treasure: a lyrical opera based on a true story of a Portland stripper going home for Christmas. Comic and poignant, it addresses sex work, family boundaries, self-realization, and the cultural tension between sex-positivity and patriarchy.

    What’s more, we want to release it on GLORIOUS VINYL, in a limited run. This party is a fundraiser, with the goal of funding the vinyl mastering and duplication. We will have prizes, performances, poetry and more.

    Please RSVP, comment, and invite others if you are interested in attending and donating. And DO plan to wear your sexiest vinyl outfit! ….if you can’t attend, please consider an online donation at

    Viva's Holiday Record Release Concert

    7:30 pm Winningstad Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway Ave, Portland, OR, 97205 (map)

    Viva’s Holiday: An Opera in One Act played to full houses and earned glowing press in its premiere run in 2015. Described as a “touching, intimate family drama” (Oregon ArtsWatch), it is a lyrical story about a young woman on an unconventional path testing the limits of family acceptance during a visit home. It is also a love-song to the Portland underground and the experience of courageous self-discovery.

    This concert performance of the opera celebrates the release of a new original recording of Christopher Corbell’s original score. Soprano Jocelyn Claire Thomas sings the role of Viva, with Sadie Gregg, Dan Gibbs, and Ray Jackson completing the cast and with twelve-piece chamber orchestra conducted by Erica Melton.

    The libretto is based on the memoir of Portland stripper, spokesperson, and writer Viva Las Vegas. Viva’s own vocal group Bergerette will also perform, offering selections of French secular vocal music from the Medieval and Renaissance eras.

    Tickets are on sale! Find them online, or at the Winningstad Theatre box office.
