Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

This was one of the most exciting and memorable opera performances I have seen in years. The direction was fascinating, detailed and original. The conducting was top level and fully satisfying and all the roles were sung and acted with conviction, talent and skill. The opera, although hundreds of years old, was shown to be an entirely relevant masterpiece.
It would take too long to mention all the felicitous details. The leading role of Don Giovanni was played by Peter Mattei. He was perfect; 6"3, boyishly handsome, charismatic, believable, acting to the hilt and singing with a gorgeous, beautiful, pliable voice.
The rest of the cast was up to this extremely high standard - which is very rare. The surprise was how sexy and gorgeous Barbara Frittoli was. One expects this from Ana Netrebko but not so much from La Frittoli who is often quite matronly. Not here!
All in all - TERRIFIC!!! Memorable! Bravissimi all around!!
