Listen. Those who know me know I always gush about the Erie Chamber Orchestra’s performances. Yet, this is a staged, fully costumed, fully dramatized, fully fleshed out musical production – MADAMA BUTTERFLY, the opera by the amazing Puccini. And, the English subtitles will be clearly displayed across the top of the stage, on screen.
EASY to follow the action.
But ….the music.
The music will completely o.v.e.r.t.a.k.e you. You’ll be totally dumbfounded. You’ll be weeping and screaming, by the end.
And, it’s free.
That’s what I said.
You’d pay $60 a ticket for a show like this, anyplace else.
That is, quite simply, the truth.
7:30pm Saturday, in the Prep Auditorium on West 10th and Sassafras, in Erie PA, behind St. Peter’s Cathedral. Seats 800.
Parking at the corner of Sassafras and 10th.

Am posting this here, in my blog, so the LinkedIn network will see it. If you live near, or are passing through, northwestern PA, take a look and listen. You won’t regret it.
