Before the weeklong extravaganza that is the Romeo and Juliet tech week, the Aria Serious crew has a whole lot of listening to get done before Monday comes around.
We'll start our Saturday with San Diego Opera Matters at 9 AM on 104.9 XLNC1 with "Romeo and Juliet: Shakespeare and Opera" while we eat our eggs and (vegi) bacon.
Then we'll get to Nixon in China recording that we mentioned last week.
Saturday night, we'll walk to our neighborhood opera house (love saying that) to see soprano Priti Gandhi rock it in recital. For more information you can visit her site here. We're so proud of Priti and just know she's going to be awesome.
Sunday well spend catching up on other tunes including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (oh wow) and Wild Beasts, and working very hard to get that The Magnetic Fields concert this week out of our heads. Then we'll take a nap - two months of opera season has already taken its toll on us.
Share your listening plans in the comment section below, and make it a good one.
