2:00 PM Opera: Falstaff Sir John Falstaff is the ultimate human juxtaposition: old yet immature, hapless but manipulative, decent yet wickedly indecent. Also a man of many appetites, the lecherous Falstaff can't resist his favorite vices: food, women and wine. Suddenly finding himself broke, he hatches a plot to cure his woes. He sends identical love letters to two married women to get his hands on their wealthy husbands' purse strings. Falstaff doesn't bank on getting found out and with the help of some merry wives, husbands and supernatural creatures, he gets his due and finds out the joke is on him. A brilliant comedy based on a character from Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, this period piece boasts an updated twist, pops of color and designs from a modern point of view for modern tastes. Starring Roberto de Candia as Falstaff, Ellie Dehn as Alice Ford, and Marianne Cornetti as Dame Quickly.

2:00 PM Stage: Blue Door Lewis is a tenured professor of mathematics at a well-regarded university. Underneath his veneer of success, however, lies a soul troubled by questions of personal and cultural identity as an African-American man. When his wife leaves him because he won't attend the Million Man March (also there's the issue with the laundry), Lewis will inadvertently conjure his ancestors who lead him through an unbelievable journey through the past and present. Filled with humor and woven through with original songs, BLUE DOOR is a vivid, exuberantly theatrical play about the African-American male experience.

Anchored by the San Diego Premiere of Anthony Davis' momentous a cappella work "Voyage Through Death to Life Upon These Shores," this program will touch on the legacy of slavery.

The first half of the concert will include Davis' virtuosic multi-movement choral work, which explores the slave narratives that helped shape this country's diverse voices with text based on the poem "Middle Passage" by Robert Hayden. This work has only had five performances putting SACRA/PROFANA in the elite company of some of the top choral ensembles in the country including Chanticleer, The Dale Warland Singers, and Musica Sacra.

For the second half of the program, the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Choir will tell the rest of the story from the slave trade up-to the modern era, including chances to join in the singing.

Each performance will be followed by an open discussion with the artists. Anthony Davis will be present at all performances.
