Come over to the dark side!
Murder and mayhem; lost love and death! Yes, Opera takes the dark themes and weaves beautiful music around the fanciful stories.
The activity will take place at the Convenor's home in Benalla on four weeknights. Opera is a
grand over-the-top art form and needs a sympathetic and comfortable environment for viewing enjoyment. We will view the performance on a large screen TV which allows for great sound as well as subtitles.
Join us to listen to four popular operas. You will recognise some of the music and get to see and hear some of the great performances on recent DVDs.
Week 1 Wednesday October 12: - Bizet’s Carmen with Jonas Kaufman (the new star) and Anna Antonacci.
Week 2 Wednesday October 26: - Verdi's Rigoletto with the master Pavarotti and Christine Eda-Pierre
Week 3 Wednesday November 9: - the Franco Zeffirelli version of Verdi's La Traviata with Domingo and Teresa Stratas
Week 4 Wednesday November 23: - a modern dress version of Mozart’s bubbly
Cosi fan Tutti starring Luca Pisaroni and Sally Mathews.
This program will be held in the evenings, starting at 7.00 pm.
Maximum participants 10.
