You want some Puccini with that? It wasn't quite like serving up opera instead of French fries when baritone Earle Patriarco was working his way through school as a singing waiter at Miceli's restaurant in Hollywood--but close. It's an Italian place, so it was more like a side of spaghetti. But for Patriarco, 34, mixing opera with pasta was the best training for a young singer. "We'd get up and sing an aria, and then say: 'May I take your order please?' " he says with a laugh.

Earle Patriarco plays the role of Figaro in Opera Pacific's production of Rossini's "Il barbiere di Siviglia," which begins its run Saturday in Costa Mesa. The baritone also sang the role in January at New York's Metropolitan Opera, and it's doubtful he can surpass the excitement surrounding his East Coast performances. He wouldn't have it any other way.

Manon turns out to be a wonderful role for Gheorghiu, who fully captures the complexity of Massenet's endlessly fascinating character, whether as dreamy innocent or feverish and dying penitent in the final scene. Alagna, her real-life husband, is less vocally resplendent as Des Grieux, although he has soaring high notes whenever he needs them. His greater strength, however, is his deeply persuasive vocal acting as ardent and desperate lover.

It was only 2 o'clock on a sunny, Sunday afternoon, but evening gowns and black tie were the costume of the occasion when Los Angeles Concert Opera gave an unstaged performance of Johann Strauss the Second's "Gypsy Baron." The Ambassador Auditorium stage in Pasadena held more than half a hundred musicians for this annual presentation. In an afternoon of able, if apparently underrehearsed, singing, the main disappointment came from the podium.

The 11th annual Corona del Mar Baroque Music Festival concluded with music director Burton Karson taking on a daunting program that ultimately proved too much to handle--or was it just too much Handel?--for his rough-and-ready musicians. The concert, Sunday at St. Michael and All Angels Church, featured a large and ambitious helping of the master, some infrequently ventured works in timely performance.
