"Opera in the Park" is coming to the San Francisco/Oakland suburbs with barihunk Zachary Gordin, soprano Kristin Clayton and conductor Bryan Nies. On Sunday, June 24th, the singers will perform with Festival Opera at the Civic Park in Walnut Creek at 5 PM.

On June 1st, at Sacramento's Pride celebration, he premiered composer Clint Borzoni's "A Nation Announcing Itself" taken from Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass."

The "Opera in the Park" program will include music from Verdi's "Il Trovatore," Bizet's "Carmen," Bernstein's "West Side Story," Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor," Puccini's "La boheme" and Bernstein's "Candide."

Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic or buy pizza at the park. No alcoholic beverages are allowed, but you can get drunk on the music.

  4. We , www.theoperaboys.com are asking round Melbourne town Australia and maybe further Nrth to Sydney for the possible touring of Zachary to Oz (Australia). Discussions are really positive with Zachary so we can go ahead asking local and Interstate opera and Festival Companies if they want to share in a visit tour, perhaps in mid 2013 dates permitting. We will be forwarding such requests to the whos who of Melb opera in the next few weeks/months. Wish us luck with our vewnture, and talk it up maybe a lil pressure from above goes a long way Downunder xoxo
