San Diego Opera Spring Festival
San Diego Opera announces a Spring season of safe, socially-distanced, drive-in performances, which opens April 24 with One Amazing Night, San Diego Opera’s annual concert of arias and duets with the San Diego Symphony. This year’s one-night-only event will feature soloists from the San Diego Opera chorus performing beloved operatic and musical favorites and is conducted by San Diego Opera’s Chorus Master and Music Administrator, Bruce Stasyna. The next evening, April 25, San Diego Opera will present the first of four performances of Rossini’s classic comedy The Barber of Seville, originally announced for the 2020 season. Additional performances are April 27, 30, and May 1. These performances will also feature the San Diego Symphony and San Diego Opera Chorus and will be a car and family-friendly 90-minute production. Like La bohème at the Drive-In, patrons will watch the action live on stage from their cars, while video monitors placed throughout the parking lot provide close-ups of the action on stage. The Company’s previously announced mainstage performances of Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi have been postponed to future seasons. The dētour Series production of Aging Magician has been rescheduled for the 2022 season at the Balboa Theatre.
