THE STORY

Two young men are boasting about their beautiful fiancées,

when the cynical old bachelor Don Alfonso challenges their lovers’ fidelity.

The young men, Guglielmo and Ferrando make a wager with the jaded gentleman that their respective fiancées would never betray them.

The terms of the wager? Don Alfonso instructs the young men to dress up as Albanians and attempt to seduce the other’s lover.

Testimonials From satisfied audiences!

    Our HS concert band's trip to your show Die Fledermaus ala Salsa (the one that you scheduled specifically for us because there was nothing else going on in Southern California on that night of our trip) is to this day still a vivid memory for the kids in the band! The boy who got up and danced the salsa with you will never live it down - even though he's a senior this year. The kids all have fond memories and thoughts about opera because they saw a great performance live and up close.

    Thank you so much for your commitment to the arts!

    An amazing show yesterday. This company puts on dynamic, thrilling performances that are 100% accessible and engaging. Top quality talent having the time of their lives, and bringing the audience right along with them. I had no idea I loved opera so much!

    Thanks, Linda Jackson, for doing all you do.

    This is the best kept secret on the westside.
    Every one of these performers could step onto an international stage and bring the house down!!
    If you want World class opera in an intimate setting....here's the company to attend.

  • Experiencing Linda Jackson and Eric Castro's Aida and Amonasro at the concert was a slice of perfection. Ethereal, heart wrenching, spellbinding, riveting, inspiring... I can't even find the proper adjective to describe the effect of those two voices ascending in that room. If you missed it, you missed a wondrous performance. That is all.
