It was my first experience with the West Bay Opera. We decided on Tuesday to see Madama Butterfly on Friday, May 22...
It was wonderful. The cast was first rate - their performing skills matched operas I've seen in SF. The venue, Lucie Stern theater is small and the stage is small. The advantage - all seats are truly close to the stage. But there was nothing small about this production. The acoustics is good the orchestra(smaller) but great.

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.
