Please join me next weekend in Oakland, CA for a “different, delightful” double bill! Festival Opera presents Gustav Holst’s Savitri and Jack Perla’s River of Light, just in time for Diwali – the festival of light!
It has truly been a joy over the past week to rehearse these pieces with my incredible colleagues – it’s a show not to be missed. Tickets are still available at indianopera.bpt.me. Hope to see you there!
Savitri & River of Light
