October 20 - 28, 2018

Mozart's most celebrated comic opera has everything an opera goer could want - love, disguise, revenge, farcical hilarity and a cathartic wedding thrown in for good measure, all tied together by the thread of the great composer's sublime masterpiece of a score. Experience the heart-warming, joyful tale of The Marriage of Figaro during the San Diego Opera's staging of the classic this fall, featuring baritone John Moore as the dastardly count Almaviva and bass-baritone Nicholas Brownlee as the hero Figaro.

Once upon a time in the Land of Oz, there was a girl and her dog - no, scrub that. This musical goes way before the arrival of Dorothy Gale and her pooch Toto. THIS is the story of two magically inclined women, one blonde, and one green of skin - and their coming-of-age as the forces of good and (perceived) 'wicked'. Discover this incredible musical phenomenon, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, which explores the foundation of the Oz legend, of what made Glinda and Elphaba become the icons of good and bad, and whether all is what it appears to be in later stories.
