Opera ... at the Library?


Though opera singers and librarians generally live on opposite ends of Noisetown, on Friday, Oct. 23, they will briefly set their differences aside for a one-night-only free event. The Ada Community Library is inviting readers and music lovers alike to enjoy a free performance featuring members of Opera Idaho. This year boasts soloist Tiffany Calas, a mezzo-soprano whose roles have included parts in Carmen and Gianni Schicchi. Fellow soprano Megan Starr-Levitt, who makes her Opera Idaho debut next May as Our Town's female lead, is also an opera veteran whose credits include The Phantom of the Opera and The Fantasticks. The two soloists will be accompanied by pianist and concerto soloist Betsi Hodges. So dust off those penguin-suits and pay those late fees--Opera Idaho is taking the "Shhh" out of the library for one evening only.

Friday, October 23, 7 p.m., FREE, Ada Community Library, 10664 W. Victory Road, 208-362-0181,
