New York, NY — Nov. 12, 2012 — Kitchen Opera Company announced today that Meredith Video Studios has signed a non-exclusive strategic content and marketing partnership agreement.  Meredith Video Studios will work closely with Kitchen Opera Company to develop and produce branded entertainment videos integrating live music performance themed around food.  The Kitchen Opera Company will make their television debut November 15, 2012 performing “What Could Be Better Than Chocolate” on Meredith’s “Better Show” a syndicated morning program seen in over 150 markets. Says Norman Schoenfeld, Executive Director of Kitchen Opera Company, “The goal in partnering with Meredith is to create one-of-a-kind live event experiences to give Meredith and its brand partners an opportunity to reach and engage audiences with something they can relate to – food — in a fun and meaningful way.  Viewers always enjoy seeing their favorite chef’s preparing recipes on television programs, but they rarely remember them or take the time to write them down.  Most people remember the words to their favorite songs though.  So Kitchen Opera Company and Meredith are creating a one-of-a-kind, original music format that we hope makes cooking an entertaining experience you won’t forget”. Kitchen Opera Company serves up a variety of live musical experiences, where the entire dining event, from food preparation to table setting to dessert, provides lyrics and story context for culinary levity and beautiful new melodies and performance.  These experiences can be customized for brands and marketing partners, like with Meredith Video Services, which brings this experience to life through their integrated media mix. Kitchen Opera Company has created a repertoire of original new songs that cross over from classical to pop to Broadway.
