Win Tix! East Village Opera Company

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 4:00 AM

The East Village Opera Company puts a decidedly modern spin on classic operatic tropes by putting a full rock band onstage with an accompanying string quartet and just two singers. They appear on Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the Wells Fargo Center and we have a couple of tickets to give away. The Toronto Globe Mail wrote earlier this month: "What fresh hell is this? The nu-opera troupe . . . runs themes from Wagner's Ring Cycle through a Queenomatic, popaholic, trashophagic demolition machine, and comes up with the most radioactive remake I've ever heard. You've been warned."

You want tix.

Write to Leslie Kenhart by 3pm on Nov. 19. They appear that night at the Wells Fargo Center, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. Preshow discussion at 7pm; total rockage at 8pm. 707.527.1200, ext.204.
