THE OPERAS: Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus is a classic example of Viennese operetta, an elegant comedy of love and good-humored revenge. Fast-moving and riotously funny, Puccini’s one-hour Gianni Schicchi features one of opera’s most beloved arias, O mio babbino caro and is paired with scenes from other popular Puccini operas. Verdi’s signature work, Aida, is filled with extraordinarily beautiful melodic themes and sharply drawn characters, as well as a sublime love duet in the final scene. Repertory Opera Company is actively seeking additional singers to sing in the spectacular Triumphal March. If interested, contact the company at (909) 230-4949. Ticket prices for all operas are $30 for adults, $10 for children/students.
THE CONCERTS: Serenades of Love has become a local tradition, a concert honoring Valentine’s Day with famous love songs and romantic ensembles from opera, American standards and Broadway. Tickets are $25 each. In Viva Diva!, LizBeth Lucca, leads the company through the music of Stephen Sondheim, who is considered the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in the American musical theater. Tickets are $25 each. The annual Manly Men of Opera is a rare opportunity to revel in the deeply resonant voices of over a dozen baritones, bass-baritones and basso-profundos. This event includes dinner and it will sell out. Tickets are $40 each or $320 for a table of eight.
