Opera

Bel Canto and Beyond...

Julie Lake will present another season of Bel Canto and Beyond at the Zamia Theatre.

This year, instead of a course of six consecutive weeks, Julie will show an opera on the third Wednesday of every month, for four months. If the course proves popular she will consider showing a further two operas in September and October.
Dates will be 15 May, 19 June, 17 July and 21 August, so opera lovers should put these in their diaries. Julie will send out reminders at the beginning of each month to those on her list of U3A opera enthusiasts, along with a program.

The 2019 season will feature Verdi's La Traviata (15 May), Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio (19 June), Puccini's Tosca (17 July) and Donizetti's The Elixir of Love (21 August). Each program will feature a short talk on the opera, its composer and the particular production, followed by a video from Julie's extensive collection.

The program will start at 11am and finish about 3pm with a break at an appropriate time, so do bring
lunch if you wish.  Tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided a usual.
