Center Stage Opera conducts ears through cultural symphonies with classic and contemporary masterpieces performed by professional and emerging artists. Satisfy auditory canals with a staging of Die Fledermaus, a champagne-laden romance filled with jovial celebration and identities mistaken. Running approximately three hours, this classic by Johann Strauss Jr. is filled with catchy, yet poignant tunes. Those craving the pangs of a heart-wrenching narrative will enjoy the world premiere production of Marie's Orchard, adapted from Willa Cather's novel O Pioneers! by Center Stage Opera's artistic director, Dylan F. Thomas. This modern masterwork runs approximately 2.5 hours, offering a soaring lyrical score filled with love, passion, betrayal, and clowns slipping on banana peels. Both performances ring with the musical graces of the Center Stage Opera Orchestra and provide an intermission for a chance to discuss plot lines or theories as to why people in the old days sung all their emotions.
Center Stage Opera performs its shows within the majestic Madrid Theatre, a 430-seat professional-level performing-arts facility in the heart of Antique Row. Both performances featured in today's deal are sung in English with supertitles projected above the stage, offering optimum authenticity and a great chance to practice speed-reading.

- At a time when major professional opera companies are singing their swan song -- trimming seasons or closing altogether -- Center Stage Opera, a small company based in the San Fernando Valley, soldiers on, presenting quality productions. – Yvonne Villarreal
