This weekend at the Opera House is jam-packed with great events!!! (And not listed below, but FREE and open to the public is Karen Akers’ master class with musical theatre students at noon on Sunday in Diers Recital Hall …)
Karen Akers Sings Cole Porter
Friday, Oct. 16, 7:30pm One of America’s most arresting and successful concert and cabaret stars, Tony Award-nominated Karen Akers has performed throughout the United States, Europe and the former Soviet Union. She has appeared in many of the world’s most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel. As audiences cheer, critics are overwhelmed; The Los Angeles Herald-Examiner says of her sound: “It’s a great voice, an instrument with the power of Streisand’s, the dark passion of Piaf’s and the lean irony of Dietrich’s, but a voice uniquely her own, because it’s coupled with an intelligence that creates moments of riveting theatricality.” Call 716-679-1891 for information or visit www.fredopera.org 1891 Fredonia Opera House, 9 Church St., Fredonia, NY 14063 Tickets: $27 ($25 Opera House Members, $10 Post-Concert Meet & Greet)
Live at the Met: Otello
Saturday, Oct. 17, 1pm Live via satellite from NYC’s Metropolitan Opera The Live at the Met Series continues with Verdi’s masterful Otello, inspired by Shakespeare’s play and matching it in tragic intensity. Director Bartlett Sher probes the Moor’s dramatic downfall with an outstanding cast: Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko plays the doomed Otello; new Soprano star Sonya Yoncheva sings Desdemona, Otello’s innocent wife and victim; and Baritone Željko Lučić plays the evil Iago, who masterminds Otello’s demise. Often cited as Italian opera’s greatest tragedy, Otello is a miraculous union of music and drama, a masterpiece as profound philosophically as it is thrilling theatrically. Call 716-679-1891 for information or visit www.fredopera.org 1891 Fredonia Opera House, 9 Church St., Fredonia, NY 14063 Tickets: $20 ($18 Opera House Members, $15 Students)
Opera House Cinema Series: Learning to Drive
Saturday, Oct. 17, & Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 7:30pm Wendy (Patricia Clarkson) is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman; Darwan (Ben Kingsley) is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew. Call 716-679-1891 for information or visit www.fredopera.org 1891 Fredonia Opera House, 9 Church St., Fredonia, NY 14063 Tickets: $7, ($6.50 seniors/Opera House members, $5 students)
