Met Opera the Cornerstone of Fathom Events Programming
As a Fathom Event Theater, the Plains Theater in Eads, Colorado is required to offer the Met Opera Series beginning in October and going through April. Every so often a new opera will be presented in the theater along with the ballets, concerts, plays, documentaries, comedy acts, and political preponderances. Just check the Plains Theater website front page at www.plainstheater.com to find out when the Fathom Events are playing.
The Met Opera opened their award-winning series of live transmissions to more than 2,000 movie theaters (including our Plains Theater) and 70 countries around the world. There will be 10 operas all together this year. How great would it be if our community member opened their world to something completely new, different, but oh so dramatic and uplifting!?
The first couple of operas were composed by Verdi who was a brilliant composer born in Italy in October of 1813 and died in Milan in January 1903. We will enjoy two operas by him including today's II TROVATORE and OTELLO.
I can't wait to watch OTELLO as I now know that although I don't understand one word the Verdi operas perform I do understand what it's all about through the amazing sound, music, artistry, and human expression of the performers. Don't miss the opportunity to bring a little art and culture into your life.....you'll be glad you were open-minded enough to do so!
