We’ve now had three rehearsals for the opera Don Giovanni. I finally feel as if I know what an oboe is. One week of no playing can sure throw me off!

I really love “Don G”. It’s fun to play, and it has very little to worry about for oboes. Mozart is just so darn perfect!

If you are a student and are interested in attending take note:

Don Giovanni — Student Discount Tickets offered by Opera San Jose
Any student age 25 or under with a current student ID can purchase a ticket to any performance for only $11; available by advance purchase online (www.operasj.com, enter “Student” as Promo Code) or by phone (408-437-4450), or in person on the day of performance starting 90 minutes before curtain at the California Theatre (345 So First St, San Jose)

If you want to watch and listen to the entire opera online, I’m sure you can find things on YouTube. I’m just not sure if there’s one there that’s been put up legally so I won’t post the full opera here. I did see this Royal Opera House video, though, and since they posted it I’m assuming they are fine with sharing. It gives you the story. It can be done in many different ways, so who knows what OSJ is doing?! Certainly not I.
