Opera San José Presents MOBY DICK In February

On February 9th, Opera San José's 35th season continues with Moby-Dick, by 2018 Grammy Nominated composer Jake Heggie (Best Contemporary Classical Composition, Great Scott) with a libretto by Gene Scheer.

The Bay Area is home to a number of internationally celebrated composers, and 17 years ago Jake Heggie became a major international player when he premiered Dead Man Walking at the San Francisco Opera. It went on to become one of the most performed and highly lauded contemporary operas of the century, and his Moby-Dick, which premiered at the Dallas Opera in 2010, has now been presented in opera companies from Australia to Washington D.C. and Calgary to Los Angeles. Opera San José is very pleased to be a co-producer of a new production of Moby-Dick headed by Utah Opera with fellow co-producers Pittsburgh Opera, Chicago Opera Theatre, and the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. This epic is one of the most absorbing dramas for the opera stage, requiring not just brilliant singing, but fully-fledged actors who can sing these powerful roles. Moby-Dick is an event not to be missed.

This production from Opera San José is funded in part by a City of San José Cultural Affairs grant and a grant from the Carol Franc Buck Foundation.

Moby-Dick will be sung in English with English supertitles. Runtime is approximately two hours and forty minutes. Opera San José presents six performances of this opera, opening in San José's California Theatre on February 9, 2019, closing February 24, 2019. The California Theatre is at 345 S. First Street in downtown San José.

Tickets are available by calling (408) 437-4450, online at OPERASJ.ORG, and at the Opera San José Box Office at 2149 Paragon Drive in San José. Prices range from $10 for students ages 25 and younger with a current student ID. Tickets are $55, $75, $95, $115, $145, $179, and $185 for adults.
