A LITTLE GAY, A LITTLE GRAY
Meeting up with old friends and making some new ones, was the agenda at the Sizzlin' Cafe on Nov. 13 and we also got some great ideas for future events. One of those ideas was to attend an opera being broadcast to a theatre, so that is what we are going to do on Dec. 14.
Now before you say "I don't do operas", like I did initially, please finish reading this post. The opera being performed is FALSTAFF, which is a comedy by Verdi. A trusted friend has recommended this production as being " quite enjoyable" for all levels of opera viewers so I'm willing to try and I hope you will also. The opera has English captions and in some ways is better than live opera, as the camera moves to give different perspectives, close-ups, etc.
The opera is being shown on Dec. 14 at 12:55 pm at the Century 16 theater at the corner of Denali and 36th. The opera is approximately 2:40 minutes in length and the admission price is $20 , no need for reservations.
There is a restaurant called Table 6 a block or two north of the theater on Denali (west side of street) and they open for brunch at 11:00, so make it a day and meet there about 11:15 before the opera. They have an area where we can gather, and while they don't take reservations, they said we shouldn't have a problem staking out that area. If you just want to come to either brunch or the opera that will work, too. Bring friends of any age and join us on Sat., Dec.14.
