We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript for audioclip 13385 has been made available.
We have the opportunity to make this a truly international weekend with an Asian celebration of the Lunar New Year and then crossing the border for one of Tijuana's favorite pastimes, roller-skating. But before we go international, let's turn to the Bible for a tale interpreted by Oscar Wilde and Richard Strauss.
"Salome," Richard Strauss' still-provocative opera opens San Diego Opera's 2012 season. Will the "Dance of the Seven Veils" be as seductive as it's supposed to be? We shall see! "Salome" opens tomorrow and runs for the next two weekends at the Civic Theater downtown.
With Monday being the first day of the Lunar New Year, various New Years Celebrations are happening this week throughout San Diego. Check out the events here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azq8dlC2emk
The San Diego Symphony's Family Festival Concert on Sunday January 29 at 2pm, titled "Passport to the World." In an era in which arts education is increasingly endangered, these concerts provide an entertaining and affordable introduction to orchestral music.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIay3yhaKlE
