Mission Opera is scheduled Sept. 30 to present “A Night at the Opera,” a season opener fundraiser gala for those who know nothing about opera, as well as those who have loved the art for years.
This one-night-only elite event takes place on Friday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. at The Main, 24266 Main St. in Newhall.
“A Night at the Opera” introduces Mission Opera’s 2022-23 season, including music from two mainstage productions: “Roméo et Juliette” by Charles Gounod and “Susannah,” an American opera in English by Carlisle Floyd.

This intimate event features pianists Cassie Gonzalez and Lindsay Aldana accompanying a cast of local singers, including Shira Renee Thomas, Joshua Wentz, Xavier Prado, Kimberlyn Jones and more.
The evening includes pre-concert music, hors d’ouvres, an open beer and wine bar, and a silent auction. The entire performance is scheduled to last two hours and 15 minutes, which includes a 15-minute intermission.
