Celebrating the beauty of opera, this evening of arias sung by international stars will be headlined by Olga Chernisheva of the Bolshoi, the star of Golden Gate Opera’s 2005 production of Madama Butterfly. The gala event, hosted by Noah Griffin, is a fundraiser for Golden Gate Opera’s upcoming performances of “Hansel & Gretel and Aida.” The musical lineup includes selections from Carmen, La Boheme, La Traviata and more. This is a night of easy listening, both for opera fans and those new to opera, to sit back and enjoy plums of the much loved great opera composers, such as Puccini and Verdi in this one-time performance.
Tickets are $62, $47 and $30; $100 tickets include Meet-the-Artists post concert reception at the theatre. The event is black tie optional and tickets and can be ordered through the Marin Center Box Office at 415-499-6800 or www.marincenter.org.
