I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

Quotes & Highlights

“William Burden sings with unfailing sweetness…and has the looks of a young romantic.” —The Financial Times

Description

Music By: Gaetano Donizetti   

Conducted By: John DeMain

Donizetti’s light-hearted confection is all about – what else? – romance, love potions, the twists and turns of courtship, and happy endings. Our production, a re-imagination by Sir Jonathan Miller (Theater & Opera Director, Physician, Author), is set in a west Texas diner in the 1950s! And the cast includes sensational tenor William Burden and Russian soprano Olga Makarina. Elixir is a lively romp – the tale of a country bumpkin, Nemorino, who can’t quite catch the eye of the woman he adores. He turns to a traveling salesman who’s pushing the title’s love potion – and hilarity ensues!
