Having garnered several top‐ten hits and gold and platinum selling albums, Collins' stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Music by W.A. Mozart; Libretto by Vid Guerrerio, based on The Marriage of Figaro by Lorenzo da Ponte
Sung in English and Spanish
Eric Einhorn • Stage Director
Jorge Parodi • Music Director
Vid Guerrerio's contemporary multicultural adaptation of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro sets the action in modern-day Beverly Hills. Hollywood elite Paul and Roxanne Conti (Count Almaviva and Rosina) are now married with a daughter, and Figaro and his soon‐to‐be‐bride Susana are undocumented workers on their estate. Hailed by Opera News as "dynamic, thought‐provoking, respectful, and, yes, hilarious," Guerrerio's English and Spanish libretto infuses Mozart's masterpiece with humor, heart, and present‐day discussions of race, class, and American identity.
