This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza had to say about 2017 Merola Opera Summer Festival :

Forty years of talent trained in Merola’s famed opera program converge at City Hall and the Herbst Theatre, starting with an elegant cocktail reception and dinner, followed by a concert to kick off Merola’s 60th Anniversary Season of performances. Alumni soprano Deborah Voigt joins mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick in a performance of “Belle nuit, o nuit d’amour,” from Offenbach’s “Les contes d’Hoffmann.”
