Following the success of last month’s Trouble in Tahiti, the Pacific Opera Project is returning to Heritage Square Park the weekend of June 4-6. The company will be staging the first known west coast production of Don Procopio, an comic opera by Georges Bizet of Carmen. While the piece may be unfamiliar to most opera goers, the cast includes many singers who have excelled in previous POP productions, including soprano Rachel Policar and company stalwart bass-baritone E. Scott Levin, who will be sure to leave his comedic imprint on the piece. The title role will be filled by Ben Lowe, making his company debut.
Don Procopio. 8PM, June 4, 5, 6, 2021. Heritage Square Museum, 3800 Homer Street, Los Angeles, CA 90031. Patrons are encouraged to arrive at 7:00 to picnic. Tickets start at $15. Be advised that as of this writing, Saturday, June 5th, is sold out. For more information and to buy tickets, visit Pacific Opera Project online.</a
