“Michael Mayes’ performance was nothing short of phenomenal – a feral but emotionally vulnerable characterization given voice in robust and impeccably controlled singing.”

Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, February 2015

Up Close and Parallèle is the premier annual fundraising event, providing essential support for Opera Parallèle and its cutting-edge productions, including this season’s Champion by Terence Blanchard at SFJAZZ.
