Live Opera - The Spring Season!
Season Sponsor

Prebys Foundation



Our drive-in La bohème was so successful, selling out most performances and drawing more than 4,200 attendees, that we are once again returning to Pechanga Sports Arena San Diego for our Spring drive-in Season. Guests will remain in their cars for the duration of the performance. The opera will be transmitted to car stereos via FM radio and large screens will show simulcasts of the singers on stage.

The Barber of Seville
Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiigggaarrro!

He’s Seville’s “King of Lather and Foam” and master of a few other tricks as well. Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his wiles to work as he aids Count Almaviva in wooing the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her disreputable guardian Dr. Bartolo keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. But no challenge is too great for Figaro and with hilarious pranks, mistaken identities, and general tomfoolery at every turn, we’ll find out which marriage is made in heaven!

Featuring “Largo al factotum,” the famous aria heard everywhere from car commercials to Bugs Bunny, and “Una voce poco fa,” Barber contains some of the most delightful music ever composed. Don’t miss this popular opera full of romance and laugh-out-loud moments.
