An Opera Performance!


I just bought a ticket to see this opera performance coming up and I thought this might make a great Meetup event! One of my friends is in the performance and she tells me its phenomenal.

I bought my ticket at:

I could arrange a group discount with the box office if people would like to come!

It would be great to meet up with fellow music lovers there!


The San Francisco Premiere of Ainadamar by Osvaldo Golijov

Opera Parallèle, San Francisco’s leading contemporary opera company returns after their acclaimed performances of The Great Gatsby last February, with Osvaldo Golijov’s riveting opera Ainadamar. Inspired by the confrontation between poet Federico Garcia Lorca and the Fascist regime during the Spanish Civil War, the opera artfully combines singing, visual arts and flamenco. This poignant story, with a libretto by award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M Butterfly, Chinglish), is told in flashback through the eyes of actress Margarita Xirgu, Lorca’s muse and most fervent advocate. Opera Parallèle, under the baton of Nicole Paiement, presents the San Francisco premiere in a production conceived and directed by Brian Staubenfiel. Staufenbiel, with the help of Scenic and Lighting Designer Matthew Antaky and Video Artist Austin Forbord, brings the story to life with creative use of new video mapping technology.

Opera singers Lisa Chavez, Marnie Breckenridge and Maya Kherani will be joined by La Tania and her troupe of flamenco dancers.

Tickets: $35 to $85 with a 10% discount for YBCA members and students.
