LVOpera was so sorry to hear of the passing of Tenor José Hernández. We were looking forward to his debut with the company as Roderigo in Verdi's OTELLO. All at the Livermore Valley Opera send condolences to his family and all who knew him. He will be sorely missed. The celestial choir gained a wonderful tenor and a dear person.

It is so amazing that you have been putting on virtual concerts, allowing us to all enjoy opera during times like these! I have been watching a lot of livestream events to keep up with opera. There is a salon concert series livestream event that I am really looking forward to that will be happening on March 31 at 7pm EST. I am really excited for this event because the featured guest will be Steven LaBrie, who played Mercutio in Romeo et Juliette! Steven is an amazing talent who sings with so much passion, so I am very interested to hear about his journey to his success. I hope to see a large turnout, so I hope to see you all there!
I have a problem that in the streamed productions the sound is a couple of seconds out of sync with the picture. Is this true for everybody?
I love the broadcasts on you - but again there has been a glitch-- a 30 minute repeat in act one of the Masked Ball and no Act two.
Hopefully the second act of Barber of Seville will be corrected on youtube. Jim S-
Enjoy! Mr. McPherson graced the LVO stage several seasons ago in “The Barber of Seville”. https://www.facebook.com/TheDrunkenTenor/videos/223236828892646/
Best date day ever! Thanks to my fella, good food & the best bartender at Demitri’s Taverna, followed up by spectacularly entertaining opera at Bankhead! ❤️❤️❤️
Dear Livermore Valley Opera, I love your theater and watch your operas very often. I have a question: Why I am being made to pay double price if I was over 40 years of age ? Are you considering the "youngsters" under 40 to be handicapped so folks over 40 need to pay for their tickets ? Sincerely, Opera Lover but maybe out of your theater.
We just learned that the event "Behind the Curtain" at the Bothwell Art Center for today at 4:00 pm has been canceled.
We are thrilled to have the Livermore Valley Opera visit Altamont Creek Elementary. The students get so excited to see their performances each year. “The Box” was exceptional and our students loved it!
How can I get tickets for your next performances?
I just wanted to say "Thank you" to the Livermore Valley Opera for such a wonderful performance at yesterday's Opera in the Vineyard. This was my husband and my first time at the Opera in the Vineyard. We look forward to attending your next event.
Go see A Masked Ball! Great casting, great voices, wonderful costumes! 3 hours and it’s all worth it!!!
