This lively event is free! So come join us to hear the sounds of Herbie Hancock, one of the most influential musicians in jazz. The series continues in March, with a performance by The Forge, a powerful new traditional Irish group.

In need for a classic heartwarming story about Ebenezer Scrooge's magical journey of redemption during the Christmas season?

These three community musical productions are in the schedule for the 2012-2013 season. Be sure to attend -- or audition! Auditions for Jekyll & Hyde and Scrooge will be held August 20 and 21 and August 27 and 28, respectively. More information will be available on the website shortly.

Bossov Ballet Theatre 

  

Prokofiev's score of Cinderella fills the Opera House this week as Bossov Ballet Theatre has its last rehearsals on the stage. The dancers filed into the theater at 8:30 wednesday morning and soon began stretching and warming up. After a thorough warm up taught by Natalya Getman, the stage was set, the dancers put on their costumes and suddenly the Opera House was transformed into the world of Cinderella. Following five hours of rehearsal, Andrei Bossov dismissed the dancers so that they could come back tomorrow and repeat the whole process. 

 

The performance has come together after a five-week intensive. Join us this weekend to see this spectacular ballet suited for people of all ages and be swept away by a night of music and dance!

 

Here's some photos of the dancers preparing for opening night this weekend (photos by Eve Schultz):
