Not an opera buff, I found the production to be highly engaging. The singers had great presence and musicality, the conductor and pianist were wonderful as well, and the intimate setting made for a perfect evening for an opera newbie.
A fully staged production of Adamo's most popular opera, Little Women, is based on the Louisa May Alcott novel loved by generations. The performances feature wonderful music and an emotionally gripping story, ranging from happy to tragic. Little Women is a perfect "beginner" opera for those just starting to explore this art form.
Emerging singers from all over the US perform in Little Women. They are participants in the Opera Academy of California Summer Program. Enjoy young and exciting talent in an intimate setting. Little Women is conducted by Maestro Jun Nakabayashi, principal conductor for the Taconic Opera. Little Women is directed by David Cox, a singer and stage director, who performs in his own production.
Little Women offers different casts for each show.
About the Ticket Supplier: Opera Academy of California
The Opera Academy of California (OAC, rhymes with "oak") is a non-profit charitable and educational organization, founded to educate new audiences about opera, and to give promising young singers an opportunity to polish their craft. We believe that bringing quality performers and appreciative audiences together will broaden the number of people who become passionate about this wonderful form of musical theatre.
We opened the Opera Academy in June of this year with an appreciation class for audiences on "The Queen of Spades" just prior to the San Francisco Opera's presentation of this Tchaikovsky classic. We are developing a series of opera appreciation classes based on the season of the SF Opera and Opera Companies around the Bay Area. In the future, we will have Master classes for singers that will be open to you. These public Master classes are a great opportunity for opera aficionados to get a behind-the-scenes peek into the work that singers and directors put into the dramatic performance you see on the stage.
