Urban Opera update

I had the good fortune of running into Chip Grant the other day and after exchanging pleasantries got to ask him something I've been wondering lately- what's next for Urban Opera?- the hugely talented local company whose inaugural production last summer made both mine and Joshua Kosman's top ten list for the year.

Chip said he had the space picked out, but didn't divulge much more, other than to say there will be another production by the company, which is good news for the local opera scene. He did tell me about another project he's about to embark on, which sounds very intriguing and will likely be a great addition to the Bay Area classical music world when it happens. I'm looking forward to it- as well as to seeing more from Urban Opera.
