If you are in Southern California, the best deal in entertainment this weekend and next is the Pacific Opera Project’s hilarious production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, one of the top ten most performed operas of all time.

I just got back from sitting at a table for four front row center for $30 per person including a bottle of wine and a platter of food.

They aren’t world class singers, but they they are quite good and are good comic actors, plus the English supertitles are filled with jokes.

Also, the ingenue diva weighs about 108 pounds, which you don’t see at operas for ten times the price. Maybe Meagan Martin isn’t yet as great a singer as Cecilia Bartoli, but she’s a lot younger and skinnier.
