The Off Center Opera is a new opera company in Seattle, started to highlight operas that don't usually get performed as well as provide performing experience for local artists. Their most recent show, Mozart's Il Re Pastore, was an excellent show! The singers were all very well versed in their parts, and the orchestra was played beautifully by Susan McDaniel. The show was very simply staged in the basement of Town Hall, which provided a lovely, intimate setting very appropriate for the show. And at $18 a ticket, this is quite a good deal for live opera. I will certainly be attending all of their future productions!
