lots of opera

The next few months are going to be fairly intensively operatic. Just in September, there are two free events, plus the first few shows on my subscription. And I no longer have a regular partner taking my second subscribed ticket. If you're interested in going to something with me, let me know. It'd be a shame to have tickets go to waste.

Sun 9/7 1:30pm -- Opera in the Park: Not really an opera, just a bunch of arias. It's on Sharon Meadow (at the east end of Golden Gate Park, near the Haight).

Wed 9/10 7:30pm -- The Mother of Us All: libretto by Gertrude Stein; about the history of women's suffrage in America, particularly focusing on Susan B. Anthony. I've never seen it.

Thu 9/18 7:30pm -- Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute): Yay, Mozart! Though actually, if they're repeating the production from a couple years ago, I was rather disappointed with the costumes and sets of that one. And the performers, actually. Hopefully it will be better this time. (This one has been spoken for.)

Sat 9/20 1:30pm -- Brown Bag Opera @ Union Square: I think this is also just random arias, though it's hard to tell from the website.

Tue 9/23 6:30pm -- Pagliacci and Cavalleria Rusticana: "Cav and Pag" are a couple of one-acts that are often performed together. Pag is basically a "buffo" comedy, while Cav is more of a drama... They're good. And this production is supposed to be particularly good. (This one has been spoken for.)
