Hi all. If you think the video is fun, wait until you see the production - it's so witty and at the same time so musically exciting. Not an opera fan? Try some, you may be surprised. We're bringing opera to the Firehouse Arts Center on April 16th - stay tuned.

I am definitely a fan of Pleasanton Weekly but: isn't this old news? I remember reading this Monday/Tuesday, seeing other stories over the course of the week and then this one return to the top of the stack again.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
