Livermore Valley Opera - A Florentine Tragedy & Gianni Schicchi
Two one-act operas – one a tragedy, one a comedy, both set in Florence. Based on fragmentary tales by two literary giants: Oscar Wilde in the first case, Dante Alighieri in the second. One tells a tale of jealousy and commerce, the other of greed and commerce. In A Florentine Tragedy, we have music and drama of Wagnerian intensity, in Gianni Schicchi brilliant comedy and one of the most memorable arias in all of opera. Both operas are guaranteed to captivate in utterly different ways. Sung in German and Italian with English supertitles.

The Gala begins with a Welcome Reception at 4:00 pm. Following will be a Dinner at 4:30 pm.
The Opening Night Gala dinner is held at Uncle Yu’s at the Vineyard, conveniently located at 39 South Livermore Avenue.

In an elegant and entertaining nod to the Rat Pack era, the Tap Pack delivers cool classics with a fresh twist, combining high-energy tap dancing, smooth vocals, a swinging live jazz band and lively on-stage banter. From the first downbeat through a toe-tapping finale, the five-member cast, dressed in slick suits and equipped with sharp wit, win audiences with amazing dance performances and engaging charm. Inspired by the original “Rat Pack”—Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy David Jr. – the Tap Pack compete, croon and cajole, delivering old school cool from the new Kings of Swing in a night of pure entertainment.

Joan Osborne & the Weepies
Joan Osborne is known for her gritty, blues-based rock sound, passionate performance, and emotionally evocative songwriting. Her style first attracted notice in the early 1990s among the vibrant scene of rootsy new acts in New York City and her breakthrough album in 1995 included the chart-topping single “One of Us.” A sought-after collaborator and versatile performer, she has shared the stage with a wide range of legendary artists including Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, Luciano Pavarotti and the Chieftains.

Singer-songwriters Deb Talan & Steve Tannen began writing together the night they met, and soon formed American indie band The Weepies. Their heartfelt songwriting and distinctive harmonies reach straight into the hearts of their fans and have helped them sell more than avmillion records over 10 years. The Weepies’ original songs appear in more than 150 placements across the media spectrum, including movies, TV shows, commercials, and original education programming for PBS Kids.
