Comeback? Brokeback?

Opera has always been popular in Italy...and around the world for centuries. Lately it seems that opera is making a comeback, with productions in movie theaters, and most recently at the ballpark!

(picture from the SF Gate website) But there are rumblings in Italy about the opera houses and funding. And it's been announced NYC Opera has commissioned Brokeback Mountain.

Friday through Sunday you'll be able to experience Puccini's Tosca at the San Antonio Opera.

Don't miss this Saturday's opera, Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi with the Chicago Lyric Opera starting at noon; and it's a night of Schubert songs and music with Ron Moore with the Tuesday Night at the Opera on KPAC & KTXI.

"I wish I could quit you" is going to make a great aria.
