The Opera San José 2009-2010 season has now been made public. I knew the operas already, but didn’t think I was supposed to spill the beans until they did.

The list:

Manon (Massenet), La Cenerentola (Rossini), Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart), La rondine (Puccini).

Yes, they are pretty safe operas. Smart and necessary for now, in my little opinion. And Rondine is new for us, so I’m really looking forward to that. I’m hopeful that at some point we’ll get to do some contemporary works, but these days risks aren’t really wise in San José.

Now I look forward to seeing the Symphony Silicon Valley schedule. I’ve heard nothing about it, though, and I suspect that won’t be up for a while yet. Last year it was announced at the end of February.

I always look forward to seeing what’s in store for my life. I’m such a control freak and love my calendar, so the opera dates have all been added to my handy dandy computer calendar. Nice!
