San Diego Comic Opera
Casa del Prado Theatre,
The Casa del Prado Theatre is an intimate 19-row theater housed in a mission-style building on Village Place in Balboa Park. When their comic operas are staged, the orchestra and chorus often outnumber the audience. This year's "(Not-So) Great Gilbert & Sullivan Concert" treated patrons to some rarely heard comedic classics. Upcoming San Diego premieres include Jim Wise's spoof of early Hollywood musicals, Dames at Sea. Ticket prices run from $17 to $21 for matinees to $18 to $23 for evening performances.
