Tonight at 5:30 pm, join the stars of the San Diego Opera's Moby-Dick for a discussion of the opera and its production. This is a fantastic opportunity for opera aficionados to ask questions of the Moby-Dick's singers, conductors, and directors. The guest panel looks at the opera's music, characters, and all of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into the production.
This production is the world premiere of Jake Heggie's opera based on Herman Melville's classic 19th-century novel, Moby Dick. It was first performed at the Dallas Opera in April of 2010. Like the novel, the opera examines the destructive power of obsession while following Captain Ahab and the crew of the Pequod as Ahab hunts the white whale.
The panel will take place in the Civic Theater's beautiful Beverly Sills Salon. This event is part of the San Diego Opera's ongoing "Stars in the Salon" series. All sessions are free to the public.
