Late-Breaking News: Handel's Ademto by BASOTI

From Chip Grant of Urban Opera fame comes word of performances tonight and tomorrow night, conveniently at San Francisco Conservatory of Music:

Chip says: I have been directing the West Coast Premier of "Admeto" with BASOTI at the SF Conservatory of Music.  "Admeto" is an opera by G.F. Handel; written basically to pit two rivals against each other ... think Angelina Jolie v. Jennifer Anniston (if Brad Pitt was a countertenor).  The story is based on a play by Euripides.  The opera will be told Lagaan-style (riffing on the 2001 Bollywood film "Lagaan").

With a chamber orchestra conducted by Sam Emanuel with some choreographic touches by the incomparable Travis Rowland, it's baroque opera meets bhangra.

Tonight and tomorrow night only!

Where:   Sol Joseph Recital Hall (downstairs)
San Francisco Conservatory of Music
50 Oak Street, San Francisco, CA  
When:   Friday, July 12th  7:30 p.m. 
Saturday July 13th  7:30 p.m.
