"The Three Feathers" video

On Sept. 8 and 10, 2023, at the Lesher Center for the Arts, we successfully produced the West Coast Premiere of the full version of the magical fairy tale opera, The Three Feathers, by Lori Laitman and Dana Gioia. Thank you to all who attended the performance! If you missed our show in person, we are excited to announce that we have received permission from the composer to share our recent professional video recording of the incredible production with the community!!

Juneteenth

Mark your calendars now for our first outreach of the year at Concord’s 2nd Annual Juneteenth event in Todos Santos Park- June 23, 2024  12:00-4:00pm. This event is sponsored by the Concord Communities Alliance and other private donors/nonprofits, This year, Solo Opera is thrilled to be a Juneteenth sponsor again, and will be bringing one of the performers and her pianist for the event- Shawnette Sulker -who recently starred in our The Three Feathers opera. We’ve requested an early performance time so her songs will be somewhere between noon to 12:30pm. We will also be there with a sponsor booth with crafts for kids and families, prizes, and info. about next year’s opera- “Lucinda y las Flores de Nochebuena.” As always, this will be a fun family event. Hope to see you there!

Upcoming

For our 2024-2025 Season, Solo Opera is planning a multi-cultural family-friendly opera and outreach project called Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena, music by Evan Mack and libretto by Joshua McGuire.  The plot of the opera stems from the Mexican folklore tale about the first poinsettia.

In preparation for this 2025 opera, we will spend 2024 producing educational outreach projects to the community in connection with this opera to be announced soon.
 
We are now looking for businesses/corporate sponsors and individual donors to help fund our innovative season to our community. Please click the button below to see attached sponsorship letter and more details about the project.
