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 Samson + Delilah on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 7:30 PM.
Opera Grand Rapids writes: “A grand opera of Biblical proportions, this lyric representation of an Old Testament story will leave you breathless. Join Opera Grand Rapids for this rare French masterpiece and see whether or not Samson can thwart Delilah’s attempts at seduction and retain the power to topple the Temple.
Making its debut in Grand Rapids, Samson + Delilah features an acclaimed national cast, a regional chorus of more than 60, and the music of the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra. ”
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! If you can’t get tickets through us or want to attend a different performance, go to the Ticketmaster website.
