About the Production

On Site Opera’s Blue Monday (a co-production with Harlem Opera Theater) was conceived for site-specific performances at Harlem’s legendary Cotton Club in the summer of 2013. This 30-minute jazz opera tells the story of a love triangle gone wrong against the backdrop of a 1920s Harlem jazz club. Each evening of the sold-out run, the doors opened an hour before the opera for cocktails and dancing accompanied by a live band.
