Music & Opera returns Jan. 13

Stratford Gazette

On Tuesday, Jan. 13, Music & Opera Appreciation begins its winter season of six programs along the theme of “love betrayed.”

For 20 years the music appreciation programs have prospered under the artistic leadership of John Leberg. With his retirement, the 2015 season begins under the baton of local talent in the Stratford area.

James Colbeck will kick off the season with his presentation of The Tales of Hoffman, an opera first performed in 1880 at the Paris Opéra-Comique.

“This musically arresting and visually stunning opera continues to captivate audiences worldwide, over the centuries,” says Colbeck.

Additional Music and Opera Appreciation programs are continuing under the direction of presenters such as Barbara Young, Cynthia Toushan and Gwenlynn Little, with programs from Die Walküre, Marriage of Figaro and Madama Butterfly.

The mission of Music and Opera Appreciation is to excite, to educate and to entertain while increasing the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts.

Tickets can be purchased by contacting Music and Opera president Joanne McArthur at musicandopera15@gmail.com or by calling 226-921-0082.

The cost is $50 for the series of six sessions or $10 per session, and tickets can be purchased at the door.
