Opera is the greatest art form created by the human mind,” Lotfi Mansouri, a judge and former general director of the San Francisco Opera tells Loni Kao Stark. “And you know why? Because it’s a composite art form. Everything is in it. It’s not just the music, it’s the stage, it’s the sets, the costumes. Dance. Lighting. Anything you want, it’s in opera.”

May 21, 7pm
California Theatre, 345 South First Street, San Jose
Tickets; $100 ($50 tax deductible) for premium seating; $50 ($25 tax-deductible) for reserved orchestra seating.

I’ll be there tomorrow night at 7:00 to hear the 10 finalists. SO cool, too, to see the number of OSJ current and former artists in residence are in the finals!!! Jouvanca Jean-Baptiste, Rebecca Davis, Christopher Bengochea, Jasmina Halimic & Krassen Karagiozov … congratulations!

And yeah, Jouvanca, I drive a Prius! Does that make ME a Prius? Hmmm. Maybe so. 😉
