This evening of one-acts is what the San
Francisco Chronicle calls “a lavish three-course
dinner, prepared by a master and promising
something for everyone’s taste.” The production
features tenor David Lomelí as Rinuccio, soprano
Patricia Racette, whose many San Francisco
Opera triumphs include an incisive portrait
of Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly, baritone
Paolo Gavanelli, intelligent direction by James
Robinson and sweeping lyricism by conductor
