Hello my Darlings, FL (aka the Fat Lady) here and loving spring time! Everything is blooming and I just received my Opera Omaha subscription information in the mail – So much OPERA, plus the bonus offerings! I hope to see you at Mozart 101. Follow my example and send back your subscription before 5/31 – I saved money and got my favorite seats.
I also want you to mark your calendar for the evening of July 24. Opera Omaha will present an open-air production of Das Barbecü, a country western spoof of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, outside of The KANEKO at 1111 Jones Street as part of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild About Omaha Weekend – June 24-25, 2009. Das Barbecü, based on the book and lyrics by Jim Luigs and music by Scott Warrender, showcases the talent of six local actors playing more than 30 outrageous characters at breakneck speed. The music style ranges from Broadway to Texas swing and from jazz to country two-step. Das Barbecü is an irreverent, slightly risqué, old-fashioned musical that is fun for everyone. It is going to be great fun, plus it FREE and open to the public.
