The Des Moines Metro Opera is to be in Chillicothe next month to perform Donizetti's romantic comedy, The Elixir of Love.
The performance is to be sung in English with piano accompaniment. It's the night of April 5th at 7 o'clock at the Gary Dickinson Performing Arts Center.
The Chillicothe Area Arts Council says, for many, this will be the first opera they've been able to attend.
The President of the Board of Directors for the Chillicothe Area Arts Council, Becky Wallace, said it's exciting to share the program with membership. She said, when season tickets were printed, negotiations for the opera program still were underway. Therefore, season ticket holders are asked to use the very top of their ticket passes---the part which says 2013-2014 season with a large red number underneath. That will serve as their ticket for the show.
Members of the Arts Council currently are determining who should serve on the organization's Board of Directors, and Officers for the Board. That's being done by an annual vote. Ballots are due the afternoon of April 1st at 5 o'clock at the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce office or the Chillicothe Area Arts Council at Post Office Box 1133.
