Opera Appreciation

Opera enthusiastic people come together to watch different operas from world famous artists on a large screen.  A gold coin donation is required for the use of the venue.  Afternoon tea is supplied by the Lodge.

Well the afternoon of Opera at Good Shepherd Lodge on Tuesday afternoon was something to write home about. The opera company of the Teatro alla Scala with orchestra conducted by Lorin Maazel could not have performed “La Traviata” any better, all in attendance were shaken when the curtain came down with the roll of the drums.
The opera house does not close during the year, so with this in view, we open again on Tuesday, 18 December with your Christmas gift coming direct from the Metropolitan Opera House, New York with Franz Lehar’s operetta “Die Lustige Witwe” or “The Merry Widow”.
An evergreen comic operetta given a gala performance in a sumptuous production of elegance and glamour with Renée Fleming taking the leading role of Hanna Glawari (the widow) and the attempts of Baron Mirko Zeta to obtain Hanna’s fortune for his impoverished country of Pontevedria by getting his young compatriot Danilo to marry her. After the opera – have a happy and blessed Christmas!
