Welcome to Modesto JaneCon!
Updated: Aug 31, 2019
'Janes will travel to see their favorite author produced on stage, and to spend time with other Janes,' I assured the management of Opera Modesto season after season. I knew this because I am a life-long Jane Austen fan. I know first hand how the JA community supports events. But I also felt in my bones that my home town of Modesto was ripe for this kind of joyful, smart, fun event. It was time to shed some of our Central Valley modesty, stand in the spotlight and show how much our city and county have to offer to destination travelers. What better way than to host a weekend-long Regency-era JaneCon downtown, centered around the US fully orchestrated premiere of Jonathan Dove's opera 'Mansfield Park'?
