Remember Urban Opera?
They staged a spare and magnificent Dido and Aeneas last year in freezing outdoor conditions a little too close to San Francisco Bay. I've been hoping they'd be back, but it's been a tough year for opera companies large and small.
John Marcher has the skinny on their 2010 plans: Purcell's The Witch of Endor, on October 30 and 31, somewhere in San Francisco. This information is not on their web site, and I haven't gotten email from the company, so I envy John his sources!
