Free opera at 11:30 a.m. today outside Museum on Main

Show in recognition of final weekend of Livermore Valley Opera exhibit

The Museum on Main and Livermore Valley Opera are joining forces to present a free opera performance in front of the downtown museum from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today to mark the final weekend of the museum's "25 Years of Music and Magic" LVO anniversary exhibit.

The show will feature soprano Revital Shmerling and baritone Llewellyn Gravely, accompanied by pianist Frank Johnson, outside the museum at 603 Main St.

It is an encore to the opera show held outside the museum Oct. 1 with baritone Jason Sarten.

"This event is an encore of the first program presented at the museum on October 1 that was very well received," said Gary Sears, LVO's community outreach manager. "The special museum exhibit, which closes on Sunday, has provided LVO the opportunity to not only share its 25-year history with the community but also offer free performances to the public."

Sears added, "We just completed the first opera of our anniversary season, Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman," our largest production yet, which received multiple rave reviews."

The local opera company, founded in 1992, is set to present its next staged opera in March, Mozart's comedic opera "The Marriage of Figaro."
