Local Opera Singers Sing their Hearts Out for Pomona

The talented singers of Repertory Opera Company will bring Valentine’s Day to life for Pomona and environs by singing their hearts out.  This “Serenades of Love” concert includes love duets, arias and songs to celebrate the romance of life.  The afternoon will include the sublime passionate duets from Madama Butterfly and Roméo et Juliette; blood stirring arias such as Nessun dorma, the Habanera from Carmen and Caro nome; and some teasingly amorous scenes from Magic Flute, Cosi fan tutte and the Barber of Seville.  Our basses will rumble your heartstrings with Some Enchanted Evening and My Funny Valentine.  The lovefest ends with the over the top revelry of the party scene from Act II of Strauss’ Die Fledermaus.   A reception with light refreshments follows the concert.

The performance is Sunday, February 10 at 4 pm at First Christian Church, 1751 N. Park Ave., Pomona, CA  91768.  Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for children. 

This is the first event of Repertory Opera Company’s fourth season in Pomona.  The season continues with Magic Flute April 20 at 2 pm;  La Traviata on June 22, 26 and 29; and ends with the “Manly Men of Opera” concert – featuring only bass and bass-baritones.  To buy tickets go to or call (909) 230-4949.
