Mezzo-Soprano Alexandra Rodrick will be performing this afternoon for Milena Kitic, who unexpectedly is unable to appear. We thank Alexandra for stepping in at the eleventh hour, and wish Milena well.

Opera returns to Orange County as Parnassus Society presents another spectacular concert featuring internationally-acclaimed opera stars and the Parnassus Chamber Orchestra led by maestro Scott Dunn. Scenes from the greatest of grand operas are strung together to tell one story of devotion and betrayal, including Carmen, Rigoletto, Faust, Don Carlos, Il Trovatore and more. Our star-studded cast includes Grammy Award-winning operatic baritone Nmon Ford, mezzo-soprano Milena Kitic “vocally resplendent,” tenor Bruce Sledge “voluminous and radiant,” and soprano Lynette Tapia “exquisite…vibrant.” This is a concert you don’t want to miss.
