Anishka and Maria, a voice and piano duo present: 'Night Music!', an afternoon of live opera performances. Featuring Anishka Lee-Skorepa, Soprano, Maria Didur, Piano, and singers from the acclaimed San Diego Opera Chorus.

Anishka and Maria will continue their recital series at the Sunset Temple, featuring works by Poulenc, 20th century American composers, and more of the "Songs and Dances of Death" by Mussorgsky. The afternoon will be a learning experience with the performers introducing the pieces with translations of the lyrics and historical context.

In light of all the uncertainty surrounding the San Diego Opera, they would also like to take this opportunity to showcase some of the talent found right here in the San Diego/Tijuana area. The second half of the show will feature arias sung by various SDO Chorus members.
