Opera San Jose is ending its 2012-2013 season with an outstanding double bill featuring Italian operas Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. Giacomo Puccini’s Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi are parts one and three of Il trittico (The Triptych)–three one-act operas with contrasting themes.
Created in 1987 by Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton, the Blue Man Group has been enjoyed by 17 million viewers. Blue Man Group is unlike anything I have ever witnessed before, and surpassed any expectation I could have had. If you haven’t seen Blue Man Group, this is one thing you have to make time to see, and take your family and friends along with you!
Bald men painted in blue? Sounds strange, right? A little perhaps, but this is all a part of what makes Blue Man Group different from any other theatrical experience you may have had in the past. Blue Man Group combines humor, acting, technology, paint, and music to create a performance that leaves you on the edge of your seat the entire show. What makes Blue Man Group particularly unique is their constant participation with the audience. There’s a strange and wonderful connection between the entire audience as you together experience what is Blue Man Group.
Just a little warning, if you’re sitting in the first few rows, be prepared for things to get a little…messy.
Blue Man Group will be at Broadway San Jose and the Center for the Performing Arts in San Jose running through April 7. Tickets are on sale now at the www.sjtix.com box office or call 408-792-4111 for more details. This is must see show for everyone–young and old!
