What You'll Get
Much like human history, opera is epic in scale, full of murders and romantic intrigue, and frequently interrupted by deformed men in half-masks and capes. Get in on the grandeur with today's Groupon. You get your choice of tickets to see the Sacramento Opera's production of Orlando. The performance takes place downtown in the Sacramento Community Center Theater on Friday, November 19, at 8 p.m. Choose one of the following options:

- For $28, you get a seat in section D ($56 value)
Composed by the German Baroque master George Frideric Handel, Orlando tracks the tumultuous love triangle created when celebrated French soldier Orlando falls in love with the eye-catching Queen Angelica, whose heart belongs to Medoro, an African prince. Countertenor Randall Scotting applies his experience singing the titular role in Budapest last year to his lead performance. The Sacramento Community Center Theater is an acoustic space designed to gently nurture delicate altos and magnify booming bass, while supertitles are featured above the stage, translating Italian lyrics into English for story lovers and aspiring Rosetta stones. The opera welcomes patrons in whatever apparel they feel comfortable in, but this opening night performance provides attendees a convenient excuse to air out tuxedos and formal gowns long hidden in backyard time capsules or dusty attic monocle collections.
