This weekend the Dayton Opera is performing La Bohme. This is the most performed and the most popular opera in the world. The passion, beauty, and young love come vividly to life in Puccini’s masterpiece. This is an opera to be seen again and again.
Sunday at the Centerville High School are the Duquesne University’s Tamburitzans. This is all about Eastern European music and dance, from Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia, and more! This is one terrific program and should not be missed by anyone who has an interest in the folk culture of Eastern Europe. Go to www.southslavicclub.org.
