I have permission from Opera San José to post photos they have provided over on Facebook. All photos are, at this point, by Pat Kirk. There are also some by Bob Shomler, but for some reason I can’t get them in full size via their press page, so just go here to see them!

As you will see, this production looks fantastic!
