Toe-Tapping Opera

February 14, 1991

Here's your chance to experience "A Night at the Italian Opera."

The Conejo Symphony Orchestra, conducted by maestro Elmer Ramsey, will present its annual City of Thousand Oaks Concert at 8 p.m. Saturday at the California Lutheran University Auditorium.

Featured is a quartet composed of soprano MaryBeth Haag, contralto Geraldine Decker, tenor Bruce Johnson and bass-baritone Ken Knight.

"It's going to be a hummer and a toe tapper," symphony Executive Director Harvey Roth said. Opera novices, said Roth, might enjoy this performance. "It will be quite familiar to all people" since it includes some of opera's memorable "old warhorses."

The operatic quartet, accompanied by the orchestra, will perform selections from Verdi's "Rigoletto" and arias, duets and ensembles from Puccini and Rossini. In addition, the orchestra will perform the Grand March from "Aida" by Verdi.

Tickets are $18, $16 and $8. For reservations or more information, call 498-7092.
