Merola Opera Program presents

Il Barbiere di Siviglia

by Gioachino Rossini with libretto by Cesare Sterbini
Sung in Italian with English supertitles

Conductor: Mark Morash
Director: Roy Rallo

Mistaken identities, lovers in disguise, an elaborate ruse and, of course, true love. In this commedia dell’arte production, lovely Rosina has two competing suitors – her guardian Dr. Bartolo and the wealthy Count Almaviva. The Count, hoping Rosina will love him for himself rather than for his money and position, disguises himself as a poor student and sets out to woo her, while dodging a suspicious Dr. Bartolo. Luckily, Count Almaviva’s trusty ally Figaro helps him deceive Dr. Bartolo and win the hand of Rosina. More disguises, a series of secret meetings and one misdirected letter combine to give everyone plenty to worry about. But in the end, true love conquers all!

Please note this opera is double cast. One cast will appear on August 1, and the other cast on August 2.

Jul/28/2011 Mentor Series – Media & Entertainment

Posted by Richard • July 28th, 2011

There is more to entertainment than reality television and hip hop. You don’t have to be in front of the camera or the microphone to be a star. Media includes print, radio, television even the internet. Meet KRON 4’s Pam Moore and others and learn more about what it takes.

Location & Time:
1300 on Fillmore
1300 Fillmore Street
www.1300fillmore.com
11:00 am

This summer, we are embarking on a project that reaches out to support our next generation of leaders. The MAGIC Mentor Series will develop new partnerships and career exploration opportunities for middle and high school students. We expect the series to inform and transform their college and career paths. This exciting initiative will connect our youth with local professionals and serve as tool for preparing for future.

The MAGIC Mentor Series will invite professionals to make a difference in the lives of young people wrestling with peer pressure and exposed to the tragedies of poverty and crime first hand. This project also supports Mo’ MAGIC’s efforts to decrease summer learning loss through experiential learning. More than fifty percent of the academic achievement gap can be traced back to summer learning loss, which is experienced at a higher rate among minorities and low income youth.

The MAGIC Mentor series will include panel presentations as well as an opportunity for participants to speak with presenters in small groups. Each presenter will be asked to give a two-minute introduction (focused on if they went to college how they benefited from doing so and if not, the role experience and other forms of education, how/if that can happen today). The remaining time is spent having a student-centered discussion about what role college/education played in their career choice and how to prepare for that career.

The MAGIC Mentor Series will take place on Thursdays during the summer (June 9 – July 28) and guests will be invited to participate in the panels and small discussion groups. If you see an area in which you wish to particpate, simply contact the Mo’ MAGIC Office at 415-563-5207 or email info@momagic.org.
