Alameda Elks club? High opera? How good can that be? I expected recorded music and a few good voices giving it a good try. Not at all. This was excellent singing and a well staged performance in an unlikely setting. This is the bargain of month and a great opportunity to hear one of Verdi's best in a fairly intimate setting. Sure they had to put the orchestra to the side since there is no pit but that worked and the orchestra played well. I am not a Verdi fan, finding many of his plots embarrassing and the music less compelling than the best composers (not a common opinion with the critics) and Trovatore is no exception in terms of plot but the music makes up for it flowing powerfully for most of the piece (it weakens in the overwrought last portion at times) and the singing is truly impressive by all of the Virago cast. Highest Recommendation.

This was an outstanding opera experience not to be missed! The vocals, chorus & orchestra were amazing!
