(And a week here, by the way, is ten days. News to me, but there you go!)
Opera San José joins opera organizations nationwide to celebrate National Opera
Week (October 26 – November 4), coordinated by OPERA America, the national service organization
for opera, with support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
As part of the week-long celebration, Opera San José will launch the company’s one-act touring opera,
Bill Goats Gruff on Thursday, November 1
at 4 pm at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library in
downtown San José. John Davies’ Billy Goats Gruff tells the classic fairytale of the three billy goats with
a contemporary twist, as it tackles the issue of bullying and promotes the power of kindness and
tolerance. The engaging performance is set to recognizable melodies from some of opera’s most
beloved composers, including Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti.
