James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
The grandest of grand operas and a brilliant balance of spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy. A bitter love triangle plays itself out against a backdrop of war and cultural oppression in this compelling tale of conflicting loyalties and forbidden passion. As Aida, soprano Micaela Carosi’s “voice wasn’t only luminous; she was alive in the role…every fear, frustration and outburst of love registered in her voice, face, body” (San Jose Mercury News). Tenor Marcello Giordani plays Radames, “mustering a ringing sound and suitably ardent phrasing” in the opera’s climax (San Francisco Chronicle). “Mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick delivered a powerhouse performance as Amneris, cloaking her unstoppable dramatic fury in plush and impeccably controlled tones.” – San Francisco Chronicle. “As Amonasro, baritone Marco Vratogna emitted gorgeous, orchestra-defying sounds.” – San Francisco Classical Voice.

He has worked for five presidents and six secretaries of defense of both political parties, and stepped down in 2013 as the longest serving Secretary of the Air Force.
