Following the tradition of some of the world's great opera houses, Opera Santa Barbara offers short introductions 45 minutes prior to the curtain of each opera. These free, 20-minute presentations will give insight and inside knowledge about the opera presentation de jour, and are free to all ticket buyers.
This year's series will be presented by Prof. Simon Williams, Dept. of Drama, UCSB.
Opera Revealed talks are held in the theatre 45 minutes prior to the curtain of each performance, or 6:45 pm for our evening shows and 1:45 pm for our matinee performances.
