Opera series opens


 

Welcome to the Opera Season. We are looking forward to seeing our seasoned opera lovers and want to encourage those who are interested but have not yet attended an opera. This season’s first Live in HD Metropolitan Opera showing, “L’Elisir d’Amore,” will be a delight to all. This comedic opera is one that will have you on edge until the cosmic question, “Can you have it all?” is answered. The twist to this opera is whether you can have love and money by simply drinking a potion.

Muddle along with a cast of four characters as they wind their way through chaos to have the answer. Will Adina accept the dashing military Sergeant Belcore or the common villager Nimorino? And what about the money — where does that come in? Join us to find out: Can you have it all?

For this opening showing of the Opera Season, we are going to celebrate by having a Grand Gala. Follow the Red Carpet to join us for the exciting beginning of the 2012-2013 Opera Season. During the opera you will enjoy yummy delectables and a taste of Homer’s own “Opera Elixir d’ Amore.” Can this be the famous drink that will allow you to “have it all?” Don’t miss the beginning as we will have an introduction to Donizetti’s comedic opera to help you understand it and have your questions answered. This is the perfect time to give opera a try. This is all happens at 6 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Homer Theatre.

Vonda Nixon, an opera lover, moved to Homer two years ago and was delighted to find this wonderful venue at the Homer Theatre in Homer.
