Other Performances

Princess Ida (Lyric Theater)

Princess IdaDates: March 25 - April 2, 2017

Location: Montgomery Theater

This piece falls into the genre of lyric theater; it's the only Gilbert and Sullivan opera with three acts and dialogue in blank verse.

This comic opera satirizes feminism in the context of conservative Victorian England, where a princess founds a women's university preaching female superiority, and the prince to whom she had been married as a child sneaks into the university to claim his bride.

La Boheme (Opera)

La bohemeDates: April 15 - 30, 2017

Location: California Theater

This April, the San Jose theater has the privilege of hosting the famous La Boheme opera by Giacomo Puccini.

It tells the story of a group of young bohemian artists in Paris' Latin Quarter who find happiness in friendship, but struggle economically.

The opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Gianni Schicchi + Trial By Jury (Operas)

Giani SchicchiDates: June 17 - 25, 2017

Location: Montgomery Theater

If you love opera, you are in luck! This production is a double bill of two great works: Puccini's Gianni Schicchi and Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial By Jury.

They are both comic operas, the former based on an incident mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy, and the latter lightheartedly revolving around the legal technicalities of the promise of marriage.
