LA Opera: Behind the Scenes!

The LA Opera Talk series continues @ Crowell Public Library SUNDAY, March 20th 2:00 p.m. Mezzo-soprano SARA CAMPBELL will give the inside scoop on exactly what goes on backstage at LA Opera before a performance when she comes to Crowell Public Library Sunday, March 20th at 2:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room. She has firsthand knowledge on how featured performers prepare, as well as what goes on with the crew and chorus. A bustling hive of activity will come alive with her presentation. A native of Pacific Palisades, Sara received a B.A. in Latin American Studies from Smith College, taught bilingual elementary school, and then earned a second Bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance/Opera at Cal State Long Beach. An exciting actress and singer, she has sung Hansel in Hansel and Gretel, Bastien in Mozart's Bastien and Bastienna, Prince Orlovsky in Strauss' Die Fledermaus and Dorabella in Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte. Besides LA Opera, she has also sung with Opera Pacific and Opera Santa Barbara. This will be the first LA Opera Talk from a performer’s perspective, so you won’t want to miss this event.
