OPERA IS ALIVE AND WELL IN SAN MIGUEL

Earlier this month we introduced you to a variety of options to enjoy the local scene and musical talents that flourish throughout San Miguel. And this blog is no exception.

Take time this winter and spring to come and enjoy some of the finest Opera performances in Mexico presented by Opera San Miguel.

According to their website this non-profit charitable organization is “dedicated to identifying and encouraging, through professional grants and performance opportunities, the most talented and promising young opera singers in Mexico, and in the process enriching and perpetuating the musical and artistic life of our community.”

That in itself is worth a vacation to San Miguel de Allende!

To get you packed and ready for a musical tour of our home town, we’ve selected two of what we think will be wonderful ways to enjoy some of the finest vocal talent in and around San Miguel’s colorful city.
