Sketch Opportunity:

San Diego Opera would love to have you come and sketch their "Marriage of Figaro" rehearsal, Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 7 PM with the opera.  If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by responding by email no later than Monday, October 15, 2018. Please only RSVP for yourself. The SD Opera will have plenty of room on this night and will be able to accommodate everyone. If you are coming as a group please have each member of the group contact directly. I need everyone’s name and contact information for security.  This comic masterpiece by Mozart is considered by many to be the “perfect opera.” Even if this is your first time seeing this opera, you’ll know much of the music. Bring a small gooseneck light that can shine on your board.
