With Break a Leg Studios. Supporting the arts is music to owner Lindsey Allen’s ears. A former employee of an opera house, she began the forthcoming nonprofit Break a Leg Studios with the goal to provide artistic education and support artists. “My dream is to have people listening to classical music every day,” she says, “I want Moore County to become the cultural center of North Carolina.” So what’s Break a Leg all about? Well, a lot. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Preludes: These are free social events for 21+ meant to support local shows. Like a vintage salon, you meet like-minded people at various locations and sip while chatting about an upcoming performance, so you can sound like a connoisseur when you see it. 
  • Opera 101: This is a four-week course to learn all about opera and its significance. The last day to register for the first session is Jan. 8 and the class meets Jan. 9, 16, 23, and 30 from 6-7:30 p.m. It’s $60 to register. 
  • Andiamo: Travel with Break a Leg studios to see various performances. The next one is Jan. 28, where you’ll travel to Charlotte to see an opera, feast on a fancy brunch and more. 

“I feel like I have all this niche knowledge and experience and this is the best way to get this out there. Opera used to be such a social event. There would be a pre-party to discuss, then the opera, then an after-party, then an after-after-party, and I want to bring that back,” says Lindsey.

Break a Leg studios has big plans, like bringing artists to Moore County for performances and hosting summer camps for kids. Lindsey also does private voice lessons for ages 10+. Visit the website for more info and programs.
