As I mentioned in my previous post, Los Angeles Opera’s 2013-2014 season opens this coming Saturday with a revival of Bizet’s Carmen. Irish mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon sings the title role, joined by the excellent male duo of Brandon Jovanovich (Don Jose) and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo (Escamillo), with newcomer Pretty Yende as Micaëla.
The final dress rehearsal will be this afternoon at 2pm Pacific Time, and once again, I’ll be commenting on the action live — 140 characters at a time via Twitter. Unlike for most of the live tweeting we do, this final dress rehearsal will be CLOSED to the public, so this will be your exclusive look at the proceedings before the curtain rises on opening night.
I invite you to follow along with the collective banter at “#LAOCarmen” or simply click HERE to be taken directly to that hashtag on Twitter. Hope you’ll join us.
