TRUE LOVE: Opera San José will open its season with 'Manon,' last performed in 2002, seen here with Sandra Rubalcava in the lead role.

Opera San José

By Michael S. Gant


AS PART of Santana Row's weekend-long salute to Bastille Day, a nonet of Opera San José stars will offer a free recital of Gallis songs, arias and duets. The emphasis will be on selections from Massenet's Manon, which will kick off Opera San José's season come September. Also on tap are familiar strains from Bizet's Carmen, Gounod's Faust and Puccini's La rondine. The singers will be Rebecca Schuessler, Alexander Boyer, Krassen Karagiozov, Isaiah Musik-Ayala, Silas Elash, Sandra Rubalcava Bengochea and Christopher Bengochea.


 OPERA SAN JOSÉ performs Saturday (July 11) at 7pm at Left Bank Brasserie, Santana Row. The show is free. (www.operasj.org)
