- SF Opera’s ‘Turandot’ takes flight toward the end
By Joshua Kosman - Saturday Sep 9, 2017
The third and final act of Puccini’s “Turandot” is, famously, when everything falls apart. This is when the insoluble contradictions of the opera’s plot — the expectation that the audience can be made to care about a love conceived in an instant and built on a foundation of torture and death — become unsustainable. Yet on Friday, Sept. 8, when “Turandot” opened the new San Francisco Opera season at the War Memorial Opera House, the last act was the point at which everything came together. All the principal singers began to blossom afresh.

- Opera served up light and flexible
By Joshua Kosman - Wednesday Nov 8, 2017
One of the things that can surely make opera more approachable is to get it out of the opera house and start spreading the music around. That’s the premise behind Opera on the Spot, the energetic new musical startup that’s been bringing economically scaled offerings to a variety of unorthodox locations. The troupe’s new show is a taut little double bill of one-acters. In Lee Hoiby’s 1981 monodrama “The Italian Lesson,” Aisha Campbell plays a New York society widow bent on self-improvement; in “La Serva Padrona,” Pergolesi’s classic two-hander from 1733, Sergey Khalikulov and Jordan Amann face off as master and serving girl in the battle of the sexes.
