The event takes place at 4 p.m. next Sunday (Jan. 20) at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 Eighth St. in Livermore, which is where the opera singers rehearse for each production. For the benefit, the space will be transformed for a display of how the sets are designed and built, along with costumes and props.
Guests will also enjoy what nearly 10,000 students in the greater Tri-Valley area have experienced this school year -- a performance of "The Box," an original opera set to the music of Mozart by Livermore Valley Opera educational outreach director Revital Shmerling.
"We are very proud of our successful educational outreach program that brings opera to so many students throughout the Tri-Valley and beyond," Schmidt said. "This is a rare opportunity to see this original opera as the students see it during school assemblies, and how the donations from our many supporters are used for student programs."
Tickets for "Behind the Curtain" are $90 per person with tables of eight available as well, and can be purchased at www.livermorevalleyopera.com. Seating is limited, and the purchase deadline is next Friday (Jan. 18).
