Performers from the Capital Heights Lyric Opera Company will present highlights from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville and Bizet’s Carmen.
In Rossini’s most popular opera, the witty barber, Figaro, helps the Count Almaviva win the hand of the beautiful Rosina. Sparkling coloratura, catchy melodies, and lively staging are guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat in these excerpts. Highlights from Carmen tell the story of the wild, beautiful Gypsy girl who chooses freedom to love whom she pleases over life itself. Carmen’s haunting melodies have kept this opera in the top 10 of the operatic repertoire since 1875.
The highlights will be performed by mezzo-soprano Frances Devine, tenor Ivan Rivera, and baritone Richard Cassell.
This opera program is made possible by generous support from the Albert Wisner Public Library Foundation.
On exhibit throughout December in the Gallery on the lower level: Talking Pictures: 50 years of Photo Journalism by Robert Demetry.
Robert Demetry will be on hand to discuss his work with interested gallery visitors. On display are many of the photos that have garnered international, national and regional awards.
Robert Demetry belongs to a special breed of news reporters. He has the instincts of a newsman, but as a photographer, he also has the compulsive desire to share his pictures with others. He is a "photojournalist."
For more than a half century, his story-telling images have graced the pages of newspapers and magazines of local, national and international significance. "A seasoned photojournalist not only tells his story visually but quickly," says Mr. Demetry. "He rarely dawdles. His captions are fact-packed, concise. His pictures get directly to the point."
All of his images have been "prize winners" in print, capturing the imagination of artistic judges and captivating newspaper readers' eyes and emotions. His pictures have talked to them...and now they will talk to you.
