My Opera Has a First Name, It's T-O-S-C-A

We announced the 09-10 season last night! Drumroll, we have a drumroll? No drumroll? We're an opera company, for goodness sakes...all right, fine. Check it out:

The Tales of Hoffmann
November 7 - 15, 2009

The Barber of Seville
February 6 - 14, 2010

April 24 - May 2, 2010

3 tales of obsession and 3 fantastic operas. Highlights? Hoffmann is that uber-cool one with the MC Escher-esque sets and costumes recently seen on the cover of Opera News. The Barber will be a traditional one from director David Gately. And the villainous Scarpia in Tosca will be played by returning Greer Grimsley, currently burning up the stage in San Diego Opera's own production of Puccini's opera. If you want a sneak peek, get on over to Aria Serious?, SDO's blog and read all about it. After that, you can read all about our season in the news release here. Extra bonus: we announced that in 2011, we'll be producing our first Czech opera - Rusalka, starring Kelly Kaduce. It's like Christmas came early!
