Need a little culture and an excuse to dress up in something other than a Halloween costume these next few weeks? Look no further than our Check It Out program! Opera Grand Rapids has graciously donated tickets to their dress rehearsal of Il Trovatore on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 7:30 PM.
Opera Grand Rapids writes: “Experience the kind of melodic and suspenseful drama only opera can deliver! A witch burned at the stake, a doomed love triangle, counts and dungeons abound in this tale of the gypsy hag’s lifetime quest for revenge. Lavish melodies like the famous “Anvil Chorus,” and powerhouse arias that stretch the limits of the human voice make this Verdi masterpiece a must see.”
If you’ve never been to the opera before, this is a great chance to try something new without investing a lot financially. Stop by any GRPL location, get your tickets and enjoy the show!
