Since I have recently discovered that my largest concentration of readers is in fact in Sacramento, I have decided to add a Performance Calendar page. This is entirely slanted toward what I would want to see, and thus emphasizes singing. It's actually impossible to find all of this information in one place.
I include things in Sacramento (Sacramento Opera, Mondavi Center), things in the San Francisco Bay Area (Philharmonia Baroque, San Francisco Opera, Cal Performances, etc.), and outstanding performances much further away. When this is possible, I link to the appropriate web page. You can use these links to guide you to other performances that might interest you. For the Met in HD performances, please consult your local movie listings.
The performances in distant locations are more or less a wish list. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Joyce Didonato at La Scala, Milan, in La Donna del Lago. And I do intend to travel to see Cecilia Bartoli at least once this year, perhaps in conjunction with the Jonas Kaufmann Gala in Zurich in May. I'll have to pull myself together and buy some tickets.
When a review shows up here, you will know that I was there.
