"Siren Song" – a contemporary opera based on a true story of a sailor who falls in love with a woman he has never met – has its last performances on Friday, March 27; Saturday, March 28; and Sunday, March 29 at 445 Cooke St. in Our Kakaʻako.

Our Kakaʻako is the stage for HOTʻs "Siren Song"

March 24, 2015

Contributed by Nadine Lagaso

Our Kakaʻako’s community space within several Cooke Street warehouses has largely been home to the monthly Honolulu Night Market, arts-focused events at Kakaʻako Agora and most recently the Hawaii Opera Theatre (HOT).

If you happen to hear angelic voices coming from Cooke Street, no, the golden gates will not appear. Those voices are coming from the 10,000 square feet of warehouse space located at 445 and 449 Cooke Street that has been converted to a non-traditional opera house for the Hawaii Opera Theatre.

Since January  HOT has used the space to rehearse for performances including “The Flying Dutchman,” “Siren Song,” and the soon-to-come “Sweeney Todd.”

“The Cooke Street warehouses have been used for a wide variety of events, but seeing it converted to a theatrical stage was such a thrilling transformation!” said Erin Kinney, marketing development manager for Our Kaka‘ako. “Equally exciting was the number of opera patrons who were experiencing Our Kaka‘ako for the first time and loving it,”

The final three performances of “Siren Song” – a contemporary opera based on a true story of a sailor who falls in love with a woman he has never met – set sail this Friday, March 27 through Sunday, March 29 at 445 Cooke St.
