Editors Note

Dear Readers ... For this issue,  MUST SEE classical/opera/jazz ...etc...are on the books, for the future weeks - starting with the SD Opera's newest production of GREAT SCOTT

With music by Jake Heggie, a Libretto by Terrence McNally and originally directed by Jack O'Brien, the SD Opera presents the music of GREAT SCOTT - which has great heart and great lightness.  With tenderness and humor, Heggie explores the music of the past - while contrasting it with today's music of popular culture.  Based on the original, GREAT SCOTT, is sure to delight in every way.

 Now, moving from the classical symphonic world, we head over to the Coronado Island, for the upcoming Lambs Players presentation of ...

AMERICAN RHYTHM, opening on June 16th, playing through August 7th ... and, a bit earlier, their "We Got Rhythm" Music! Dessert! Reception, on April 24th.  Together, with their present big hit DINNER WITH MARLENE, Lambs Players offers a banquet or theatre riches.

From Coronado Island, back over here to La Jolla, for the Bodhi Tree Concerts presentation of BRUNDIBAR ...

Scheduled to play to all San Diegans, the popular Bodhi Tree Concerts, will offer-up BRUNDIBAR, on Saturday, June 11th (at 7pm), at the Irwin Jacobs Qualcomm Hall.  BRUNDIBAR, is a charming children's opera, however, with a devastating history - written by Hans Krasa.

I kid you not, THE BIG RIVER, as directed and choreographed by Colleen Koller Smith, featuring the young talents of Reed Lievers as HUCK FINN, and Zackry Scot Wolfe, as TOM SAWYER, with a six piece rockin' band, along with a cast ensemble ...that is second-to-none!
