Tweeting live from backstage at tonight’s LA Opera season opener of “The Two Foscari” starring Plácido Domingo

Tonight marks the opening of Los Angeles Opera’s 2012/2013 season with a new production of Verdi’s rarely performed I Due Foscari (The Two Foscari).  Plácido Domingo takes on the role of Francesco Foscari, his latest foray into the baritone repertoire and 140th role overall (give or take) in his illustrious career.

I’ll be there tonight, but watching from a different perspective than I’m used to having — backstage.  I’ve been invited to live tweet the performance along with a few other folks sitting alongside the KUSC broadcast desk.  You can follow along via hashtag #LAOFoscari on Twitter.   Curtain is at 7:30pm Pacific Time, but coverage by the Twitterati will likely begin way before that.

Hoping to be able to watch a performance from the other side of the curtain; if/when that happens, I’ll write up a proper review.  Until then, sit back and watch tonight’s opera unfold 140 characters at a time.
