It may not be the New York Metropolitan Opera performed live at Lincoln Center, but for those who love opera, we do have a small club that meets monthly. The club was begun in 2013 by Salvador López and Miguel Ángel Lugo, who are big opera aficionados. Apparently, Salvador had an extensive collection of DVDs that he was willing to share and an informal group was formed.
In July, Carmen the romantic tragedy by Georges Bizet, was performed by London’s Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra. Earlier this year, The Mikado, a more contemporary comic operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan, featured Opera Australia.
The Opera Club meets the first Thursday of each month from November to July in the Auditorium at Mansiones Cruz del Mar, which is located on Punta Santa Cruz. Seating is limited, so if you would like to attend, please reserve in advance.
A donation of 100 pesos/ person is requested to cover the cost of using the auditorium. Meetings begin at 6:30 PM, with each person bringing wine and some finger food to share during the pre-show reception and intermission. The performance begins at 7:00 PM.
