Banjo + Opera = Hilarity

If one had a burning desire to hear San Francisco Opera's General Director David Gockley sing, one might head over to the Porch Stage of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass concert tomorrow at 3:20pm. As an added bonus, all the hipsters will be over at the Rooster Stage hearing Iron & Wine, and thus can easily be avoided.

In other SF Opera news, this year's Interview with an Icon event is happening not just as Yom Kippur starts, as scheduled, but tomorrow at 6pm. Stage director John Copley is the icon this time. I'm terribly disappointed I cannot attend, as Copley is supposedly quite funny. It might have been nicer to know this was going to be switched to an entirely new date a bit earlier.

One will note that the Idomeneo dress rehearsal next Saturday has been moved up so that it conflicts with the Met's simulcast of Salomé. At least we were emailed about that one, and I received the scheduling change in the mail as well, a week before the postcard about Copley arrived.
