7:00 PM Opera: Rigoletto The lecherous Duke of Mantua seduces wives and daughters while his hunchbacked Jester, Rigoletto, adds insult to injury by ridiculing their husbands and fathers. Finally, the joke goes too far and a furious father proclaims a curse on Rigoletto. The curse comes to life as the Duke seduces Rigoletto's young, innocent daughter Gilda and Rigoletto plots his revenge with an attempt to assassinate him, with unbelievably disastrous results.

Fast-paced and powerful, this is Verdi at his best with an unforgettable focus on the cruel realities of a society controlled by a corrupt ruling class. You'll recognize melody after melody from the tenor's arrogant La donna è mobile to the soprano's wistful Caro nome to the most memorable quartet in all of opera.

"Rigoletto" is an traditional Italian classic that is the cornerstone of the opera repertoire. It will be sung in Italian with projected English translations. For tickets and additional details call (619) 533-7000.

8:00 PM Music: Leyla McCalla A former member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, multi-instrumentalist Leyla McCalla ventured out on a solo career to pursue a personal sound. A New York-born Haitian American living in New Orleans, McCalla is deeply influenced by traditional Creole, Cajun, and Haitian music, as well as by American jazz and folk. Her music is at once earthy, elegant, soulful, and witty. It vibrates with three centuries of history, yet also feels strikingly fresh, distinctive, and contemporary.

McCalla's latest album, A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey, explores issues of social justice and pan-African consciousness. She has spent the last year and a half touring extensively around North America and Europe, and plans to release her third album in 2018.

Admission/Cost: $9 - $30

Location:
