Single Tickets Now Available for New Season of Opera Santa Barbara

New artistic director José Maria Condemi has designed a diverse lineup

Opera Santa Barbara has announced that single tickets are now available for its 2010-11 season.

This is the first season designed by new Opera Santa Barbara artistic director José Maria Condemi.

It begins with “An Evening with Patricia Racette” at 5 p.m. Nov. 21 at The Granada.

Racette, one of opera’s most in-demand sopranos, will sing some of opera’s most beloved arias, including several from her title roles in Madama Butterfly, Tosca and Il Trovatore. Maestro Valéry Ryvkin will conduct a full orchestra.

March 4-6, Opera Santa Barbara will present one of “grand opera’s” timeless favorites, Verdi’s La Traviata, at The Granada. Condemi will direct a cast that includes Rebecca Davis (Violetta),  Ryan MacPherson (Alfredo) and Malcolm MacKenzie (Germont).

Finally, a contemporary double-bill featuring the Adler Fellows from the San Francisco Opera April 8-10 at the Lobero Theatre will feature both the comic opera La Serva Padrona and Leonard Bernstein’s first opera, the bittersweet satire about 1950s suburbia, Trouble in Tahiti. These will be directed by acclaimed San Francisco director/choreographer Joe Goode.

For tickets to productions at The Granada, call 805.899.222, and for the Lobero, call 805.963.0761. Tickets range from $25 to $150.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
