The Opera Film series started on (the first) Thursday – 3/1/12 – in March, and will continue on (all) Thursdays at 7:30pm. (sharp! – HELLO – Miami?)
“Carmen” kicked off the Opera Film NWS WallCast™ series (movies, not live broadcasts). A perfect way to spend a couple of hours at night, trying to figure out the music & language of … opera. (on film)
… and best of all, it’s FREE too!
