Presenting exciting pairings of opera, ballet, and classic films at historic SoCal venues.


Starting in February 2024, Cinballera hosts its own monthly opera night, Cinballera Salon: Opera at the Villa! We're collaborating with the historic Villa Montezuma Museum at 1925 K Street, San Diego in the historic Sherman Heights Historic District. 

We call this series Cinballera Salon because it is a loving tribute to the musical salons of years past, when friends would gather in lovely parlor to enjoy sharing music for an evening. Hosted the third week of the month, each evening will have a different theme. Music on the program will include opera arias, art songs, and other classical vocal music, performed by talented operatic singers from throughout the region. There is a special emphasis on duets, trios, and other ensembles, to recreate opera scenes in an intimate setting.

We usually host these events on the third Monday of the month at 7 PM. 

There are no tickets, just admittance with a donation at the door. The suggested amount is $25 per person, but we appreciate whatever you can contribute. Cinballera Entertainment is 501(3)c, so all donations are tax deductible. All the proceeds benefit the two non-profit organizations, Cinballera and Friends of the Villa Montezuma, Inc, and pay the performers involved.
