'Ah! Mes Amis' with Opera Santa Barbara Gala
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, OSB produced a beautiful night of opera hits with some of their past seasons' stars., including tenor Nathan Granner singing this (10 high C and one high D) memorable and fun aria.

Nathan Granner as The Magician, "a wildly successful tour de force"
The Magician scene in Gian Carlo Menotti's horror tale of bureaucracy is a moment of slight mirth in the dire straits accompanying the opera characters. Real magic, comedic choreography and devilishly deceptive music make this scene a challenge and a reward for cast and audience alike.
Granner sings Ah! Lêve toi Soleil
Luckily for Romeo, Juliet's balcony is more than six feet off the ground, leaving tenor Nathan Granner free to profess his undying love. Nathan first charmed OSB audiences as Rodolfo in La bohème last season. Although our production of Romeo and Juliet cannot proceed, Nathan has graciously offered to serenade everyone at home with "Ah! lève-toi soleil".
