(How confusing is it that “National Opera Week” is longer than a week? Hmmm.)

Opera San José is proud to announce its participation in Opera America’s National Opera Week, November 13-22, 2009. An “unprecedented critical mass of opera activity in the United States,” National Opera Week will celebrate the vitality of opera in America as a contemporary cultural expression.

To commemorate the occasion, Mayor Chuck Reed will be making a special proclamation at the opening night performance of Rossini’s La Cenerentola (Cinderella) on November 14th.

As a part of this week-long celebration, residents from Opera San José will be performing a free concert for commuters at Diridon Station, between 5-6pm on November 18th, 2009.

While you’re enjoying the music, enter to win two tickets to La Cenerentola! This beautiful opera tells the classic tale of Angelina, a kind and beautiful girl who captures the heart of a prince, despite the schemes of her horrid stepsisters. A
family-friendly comedy, this opera will charm you with hilarious antics, dazzling music, gorgeous costumes and spectacular sets.

Student tickets to Opera San José productions are only $11 for ages 25 and under. Bring the family to our matinee on Sunday, November 15th, and stay after the performance to meet Cinderella and her Prince!

Opera San José performs at the California Theatre in downtown San José, on the corner of S. First Street and E. San Carlos – less than a block from San Antonio station and dozens of delicious restaurants. VTA and Caltrain monthly pass holders: save 20% on tickets to La Cenerentola!
