San Francisco Opera Adler Fellows take the stage with New Century for an evening of music from opera, including a performance of Gaetano Donizetti’s rarely presented one act opera Rita, a hilarious comic tale of domestic strife.

New Century is joined by Chanticleer, “the world’s reigning male chorus” (The New Yorker), for a program that takes the listener aboard an ocean liner, travelling from an increasingly menacing Germany to a swinging, jazz-filled New York in the 1930’s.
