Review for Golden Gate Opera, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Golden Gate Opera performs professional opera in intimate local setting at prices you can afford. At the fund raising events you meet the performers and their families and they sing for you so close that you might feel their breath or hear the rustle in their clothes. These performers love their work and strive for excellence even at a small dinner party. Roberta runs the opera in such a way that people feel important and included - even the audience comes away with the feeling they have played a special role in being there. You know the money from the show tickets doesn't come close to covering all of the opera and administration costs. I donate and volunteer because I want more local opera like that in my life.
