The Italian Girl in Algiers
Directed by Michael Shell, with Lisa Chavez as title character Isabella, Opera San Jose's production The Italian Girl in Algiers offers Rossini's version of broad political satire. While it's one of many 19th-century operas to poke fun at Europeans abroad, this show, and this production in particular, serves as a side-splitting example of the form. Through November 30th.

The Los Angeles-based singer draws liberally from an '80s musical aesthetic on her 2013 debut LP Night Time, My Time, which landed on many critics' year-end lists, and where sandwiched between songs about boys and young love ("24 Hours," "Boys") come forceful ruminations of self-doubt ("I Blame Myself," "Nobody Asked Me If I Was Okay"). Once a shaky live performer, Ferriera has since gotten tough opening for Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz tour, and now commands the stage with a magnetic presence. Details and ticket information here.
