Coming Up: West Edge Opera's I Due Foscari

After the great success of Poliuto, I am looking forward to hearing WEO's I Due Foscari, an early Verdi work that's been revived here and there recently....because Placido Domingo wanted to sing the baritone role. I know enough early Verdi to want to hear all of it, so this is a great opportunity.

Here are the details from the press release:

Verdi's I Due Foscari
Sunday, May 3, 1 pm
Rossmoor Event Center, 1010 Stanley Dollar Drive, Rossmoor, Walnut Creek

Monday, May 4, 8 pm

Michael-Paul Krubitzer, tenor
Melody King, soprano
Ellen Presley, mezzo soprano
Paul Cheak, bass
Jonathan Khuner, conductor & pianist
Tickets online: www.westedgeopera,org
Tickets by phone:
Rossmoor: 510-841-1903
Freight and Salvage: 510-644-2020 extension120.

Information: 510-841-1903

The Rossmoor venue happens to be quite nice: it's a multi-function room with a stage, comfortable chairs, and excellent acoustics. The restaurant across the street is perfectly fine, with good sandwiches and other dishes too.

Love the phrase, "The Rossmoor venue happens to be quite nice." It's true. The place is new, well-equipped and completely unpretentious. However, I want it officially on the record that I discovered the place with "Zelmira," the first Medium Rare concert in the space, and photo documented the Rossmoor Event Center in all its glory.
