Presenter: Linda Murray
Location: Simcoe Room, Seniors Centre
               56 Francis Street
               Kingston, K7M 1L7

                           OPERA AT WAR

A look at how the second world war affected the world of opera, followed by an exploration of how war themes figure in the plots of many of our favourite operas.

Did the composers mean those themes to be incidental or a crucial to the story?

A light meal consisting of soup, sandwiches, dessert, and beverages will be available at 5:30 pm at a cost of $12 per person. For information about registration, email kingstonopera@hotmail.com or call the Seniors Centre at 613-548-7810.
