This Friday we will be taking our Brashear Kids and their parents to see The Marriage of Figaro at the Pittsburgh Opera. Our trips to the Opera are a bi-annual event that is made possible by the generous donation of tickets from the opera house.
We are lucky to have Ms. Marilyn Michalka come in a few days prior to the show, and educate the attending group about the show, its origins, and even of the costumes. It's really a great experience as she explains everything so that those who may not be, in this case, native speakers of Italians what's going in a brief yet very informative summary of the show. This really gets our kids, and us, thinking and really excited for the performance.
The Marriage of Figaro will be showing at the Pittsburgh Opera House on November 4th, 7th, 10th, and 12th. For more information on the actual performance and the amazing staff involved, visit their website:
