Operetta is a short opera, usually on a light or humorous theme and typically having spoken dialogue. It is often considered less “serious” than operas. While an opera’s story is usually believable and more relatable to its audience, an operetta aims to simply amuse.

This season, T’AINT OPERA! will feature Neomi Iaian Giron, Camille Maica Juanitez, Renz Nathaniel Cruz, Kevin Guiman, Eden Dumlao, Cloi Sugano, Melisa Camba, Rein Pineda, Kimberly Adam with the special participation of Nazer Salcedo with collaborating artist, Obel Alalong, on the piano.
