Opera production. "I remember going to L.A. Opera in high school," recalls Gruber, 27, speaking by phone from her home in New York, where she is in her third year at the Juilliard Opera Center. "I saw 'Salome' with Maria Ewing and 'Otello' with Placido Domingo. That was the clincher.

"Manon Lescaut" found its way to Opera Pacific last month; "Il Tabarro" gets the Long Beach Opera treatment in June. And Saturday night, Los Angeles Opera brought the composer's seldom-encountered "La Rondine" to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Rare as "Rondine" is, this "Rondine" is rarer still.
