September 26: goes to the opera!

September 26: goes to the opera!
by Alahazrat Hajagha

For the first time in my life I am excited about opera! All it took was to hear three beautiful women sing it to me in Farsi! And I am all theirs! Well, they didn't really sing it "to me," so that part isn't 100% true, but the part about my being devoted to them is true! Take a look for yourself here and you will know what I mean:


By the time I finished watching the video clip I was in love with Persian opera (of the soprano kind)! These women are absolutely fantastic. They are gorgeous and talented and they make me so proud of Iranian women.

I know JJ must have worked very hard to bring all these fabulous world class artists together for a concert for I already knew all about Lily Afshar who is another very special and talented Iranian artist. I'm also looking forward to seeing Fared Shafinury whose performance I missed last April when he was here but I was travelling. And now I know all about the soprano ladies, too!

I can't wait for September 26th! If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, buy your tickets ( soon as this very special lineup of artists will be a night to remember and a very special night for Iranian community in Northern California.

Between now and then, I'm going to listen to some more opera! See you at the music festival!

thanks  His majesty for your nice article . I have never been fan of opera , I wasn't able to understand it . it is clear . Opera is a western art . you need all Western culture beck grounds  for understanding it and connect to it . But  when I watched and listen to these ladies song  , I enjoyed  . it is an Iranian opera and it comes from your culture . it is great chance to watch live performance of three Iranian sopranos . I will be there . in addition don't forget Lily Afshar  concert. she is  an amazing guitarist


They are wonderful!
