June Cinballera Salon: Songs of the East
On June 17, the third Monday of the month, join us at the Villa Montezuma at 7 PM for Songs of the East!
One evening each month, Cinballera hosts its own monthly opera night, Cinballera Salon: Opera at the Villa! We're collaborating with the historic Villa Montezuma Museum at 1925 K Street, San Diego in the historic Sherman Heights Historic District. June will be Salon's fourth month.
This month will be an exotic adventure to the Orient, a musical journey through India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Persia, Turkey, China, and Japan. The Middle East and Far East come to life through opera arias and art songs set in oriental countries, with repertoire ranging from beloved Puccini classics to obscure British art songs.
We call this series Cinballera Salon because it is a loving tribute to the musical salons of years past, when friends would gather in lovely parlor to enjoy sharing music for an evening. Hosted the third week of the month, each evening will have a different theme. Music on the program will include opera arias, art songs, and other classical vocal music, performed by talented operatic singers from throughout the region. There is a special emphasis on duets, trios, and other ensembles, to recreate opera scenes in an intimate setting.
In keeping with this mansion's gracious history, we encourage our guests to use this as an excuse to dress up for an evening out! Gentlemen, dust off your favorite suit and tie, and ladies, here's a chance to wear that dress and hat you've been saving! In keeping with the theme, the suggested style guide is inspiration from the Orient. You could wear traditional Middle Eastern or Asian garb or Western clothing with hints of eastern style.
There are no tickets, just admittance with a donation at the door. The suggested amount is $25 per person, but we appreciate whatever you can contribute.
