The opera plays with history – again

Elza van den Heever plays Elisabetta in Donizetti’s “Maria Stuarda.”
FLC rewards opera fans with some TLC

Opera lovers who attended “Les Troyens” on Jan. 5 had a special treat to help the five–hour–plus opera speed by. Concert Hall Director Charles Leslie arranged for a free buffet of sandwiches, coffee and tea. During each of the two intermissions, patrons chose turkey, beef or veggie delights and refilled coffee cups. Donations were accepted, and Leslie says he may repeat the offering for the next long opera, Wagner’s “Parsifal,” on March 2. Meanwhile, patrons are always welcome to bring a thermos and pack a lunch to help them through The MET: Live in HD at Fort Lewis College.

If you go

The MET: Live in HD will present Donizetti’s two-act “Maria Stuarda,” at 10:55 a.m. Saturday in the Vallecito Room of the Fort Lewis College Student Union.
