OPERA SANTA BARBARA BRINGS LIVE OPERA BACK TO ELINGS PARK
Opera Santa Barbara brings back the popular live music event Opera in the Park to the beautiful Godric Grove at Elings Park. There will be one live performance on Saturday, September 10 at 4PM. Seating is limited and advanced reservations are required. Tickets are $25 per person and includes parking.
As summer comes to a close and Opera Santa Barbara looks ahead to the start of the 22/23 season, come enjoy an hour of operatic bliss en plein air. The concert will take place at the Wells Fargo Amphitheater at Godric Grove and will run about one hour. The performance features four opera singers who now call Santa Barbara home: mezzo soprano Max Potter, baritone Matt Peterson, mezzo soprano Christina Pezzarossi, and bass Colin Ramsey. All of these artists are alumni or members of the Chrisman Studio Artist Program, named in recognition of the support of Sarah and Roger Chrisman.
The Chrisman Studio Artist Program is Opera Santa Barbara’s young artist program with a renewed focus to employ California based artists for 360º training opportunities both on stage and off. The performers will select some of their favorite repertoire including operatic arias and duets, musical theatre selections, and more. Patrons can enjoy a fantastic afternoon of music from emerging young artists while taking in the gorgeous ocean views from the top of Elings Park, the largest community-supported non-profit public park in America. We’re thrilled to return and partner with Elings Park for this concert. We make it a priority at Opera Santa Barbara to celebrate California talent and I am so excited to have such amazing young opera singers living right here in Santa Barbara. This is a more casual opportunity to hear great singing up close and personal, and to appreciate the beauty of art, nature, and our Santa Barbara community,” says Opera Santa Barbara Principal Pianist Tim Accurso.
