SUBJECT: The Grenfell Opera Series Continues!

DATE: Jan. 28

The information below/attached is distributed on behalf of Edwin Bezzina…

Offenbach’s La Vie Parisienne

          Come join us for a wonderful evening of comic operetta with Jacques Offenbach’s La Vie parisienne (with English subtitles). It’s a light-hearted and quite humorous operatic comedy depicting the giddy nightlife in Paris, adapted to a contemporary setting. The work is full of funny plot twists, lively boisterous music, and sultry sensuality (oh-là-là)! We’ll be showing you the 2008 production from the Opéra de Lyon, directed by Laurent Pelly.

Sunday, January 31, 2010
7:00p.m., in the Forestry Building, room FC2014
Dr. Ron Richards will provide the summary and the background on the opera.
Refreshments will be served.
