Spend a Day at the Opera with Next Door Solutions

purpleSpend a day at the opera with Next Door Solutions and Opera San José, and join us for a special discussion exploring the theme of domestic violence in André Previn’s opera A Streetcar Named Desire after the performance on April 17 at 3pm. The opera tells the story of Blanche DuBois, a fading though still attractive Southern belle whose poise is a persona she presents to shield others, but most of all herself, from her delusions of grandeur. Moving into her sister’s cramped apartment, and creating all the wrong kinds of sparks with her crude and cruel brother-in-law, the dark truths about Blanche’s past begin to emerge, and her world comes apart at the seams in a downward spiral. The post-performance discussion will feature Stacey Tappan and Sara Duchovnay, both appearing as Stella Kowalski during the opera’s run with Opera San Jose, and Next Door Solutions’ Executive Director Kathleen Krenek.

A Streetcar Named Desire will be sung in English with English supertitles. Six performances are scheduled from April 16th through May 1st at the California Theatre, 345 South First Street in downtown San José. Tickets are on sale at the Opera San José Box Office, online at operasj.organd by phone at (408) 437-4450. Supporters of Next Door Solutions can purchase a ticket using the special code “NDS45” and receive 20% off their ticket price. For more information, please go to or contact Bernadette White at or 408-501-7571.

Special thanks to Opera San Jose for this opportunity!
