Beat the Blahs Series
Opera Guild of Rochester conquers dull Sunday afternoons by sharing opera video presentations of acclaimed productions by your favorite composers. The Beat the Blahs Haskell Rosenberg Memorial Series features four events, held each Sunday in January from 1 – 5pm at Rochester Academy of Medicine, 1441 East Ave. Each screening is preceded by a brief pre-show talk about the production.
On January 30 we will view Massenet's Manon performed by Staatsoper Unter Den Linden in 2007, with Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon. A classic 19th century romantic tragedy, this is the French version of the story of the glamorous Manon and her struggle over true love versus the easy life.
