The weather was Sunny, hot, high 70's in late October.. I wore Silk outfit that looked good, got lots of comments, BUT didn't protect me from the freezing air-cond. temperature inside the auditorium. BRING A COAT OR BLANKET!.

The adjacent lot fills up fast as there are other facilities in the area (children's zoo, library, museum, etc.), there are some street parking in the neighborhood, so get there early.

About the Ticket Supplier: West Bay Opera

Performing both the familiar and the adventurous, West Bay Opera seeks to please and challenge singers and audiences with three productions per season, one each in October, February, and May. The repertoire includes standard popular works, lesser-known operas and operettas, and occasionally operas by modern composers. Some of West Bay Opera’s greatest successes result from undertaking formidable artistic challenges. Past accomplishments include Bellini’s rarely-performed Norma, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in the original Russian, and Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer. The principal consideration is always to give talented young opera singers an opportunity to perform challenging roles and, in turn, to give audiences the pleasure of hearing these singers on their way to fame.
