While You Were Out

Over the weekend:

- With The Met's season starting tonight with their first installment of their new Ring Cycle, the wonderful Alex Ross asks if multimillion dollar opera productions have a place in this world.

- Did you know we have $99 Orchestra tickets this year. Single tickets go on sale to the general public October 3, but since you read Aria Serious, you don't need to wait.

- For the datebook: Interested in hearing a bit of Moby-Dick? Well on Sunday October 3, 2010 San Diego Opera friend and the composer of Moby-Dick, Jake Heggie, will be holding a recital at the Neuroscience Institute in La Jolla at 2:30 PM. He'll be joined by San Diego Opera friend, the mezzo-soprano Suzanna Guzman. Together they'll perform a selection of arias and songs composed by Mr. Heggie including the overture to Moby-Dick. In between pieces they'll provide commentaries on their craft. For more information and tickets you can visit here.
