For the Valentine's Season

Over thirty talented singers of Pomona's Repertory Opera Company will bring the Valentine’s spirit to life with their concert “Serenades of Love”.   This concert includes love duets, opera arias and musical theater songs to celebrate romance.  There will be the sublimely passionate duets from Madama Butterfly, Pearl Fishers and La Bohème and blood stirring arias such as Ah, mes amis with its 9 high C's, Dove sono and Chi bel sogno.  We will rumble your heartstrings with Some Enchanted Evening and tickle your funny bone with Blah, blah, blah by Gershwin.  The ROC Children's chorus will sing the beautiful prayer from Hansel and Gretel and Who will Buy from Oliver.  The lovefest culminates with the extraordinary Sextet from the Tales of Hoffman.  

A reception with light refreshments follows the concert.

The performance is Sunday, February 9 at 4 pm at First Christian Church, 1751 N. Park Ave., Pomona, CA  91768.  Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children. 

This event is part of Repertory Opera Company’s fifth season in Pomona.  The season continues with Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte in March and Puccini's  Tosca in June; and ends with the Fourth Annual “Manly Men of Opera” dinner concert – featuring a bevy of  basses and bass-baritones.  

To buy tickets go to or call (909) 230-4949.
