Clare Barca asked me to photograph the dress rehearsal of Marriage of Figaro this evening. I did and what a glorious evening, having nine of the best voices I have ever heard serenading me and a handful of other people.
You know I love to support the artistic community. Well, this group of singers, all young, brought in by Clare’s Mendocino Opera Fresca are just not to be missed. They will be performing at Preston Hall in Mendocino on Saturday evening at 7:30pm and Sunday afternoon at 3:00pm. Tickets are $25, and I assure you it is worth it.
Marriage of Figaro is very listenable. Mozart has a great feel for beautiful music. You will surely recognize many, if not all, the arias. I already said so, but I am willing to bet this is the best ensemble of operatic voices the North Coast has ever heard.
Enough of my gushing. Hope I see you there Saturday evening.
