Long Beach Opera, 2014 Season

Apparently I forgot to do a season announcement posting for LBO, among the most adventurous opera companies in the country. (Locally, see West Edge and Opera Parallel, for adventurous. Hmm, they do not seem to have done season announcements yet.) That's the bad news, but the good news is that they've changed a few dates, so I don't have to do a correction.

This is just the basics; the operas, the composers, the dates. Please visit their web site for further information, because they perform at more than one venue.

All I can say about this season is "Wow." I have already put The Death of Klinghoffer on my calendar. Not sure about whether I can get to the others. Also note that that in September, LBO has performances of the late Peter Lieberson's King Gesar, and goodness knows, you will not have many chances to hear that opera.
