Opera in Cinema: The Barber of Seville

An opera in two acts from Teatro Regio di Parma, Parma, Italy.  Shown with one intermission.  Sung in Italian with English subtitles.  Rossini completed all the music for Il Barbiere di Siviglia in less than three weeks. This opera buffa was booed at its first performance, only to become a hit a week later. Its popularity has only increased since then, and is now one of the most frequently performed operas worldwide.  Theatre N at Nemours, May 22nd, 2:30 p.m.

 

 

The Three Bully Goats Griff

Children will delight in this light-hearted, funny show, hardly aware that they’re also receiving a timely lesson.  The two toll trolls who are bickering on a bridge have a “falling out” after Billy, the smallest of the three goats, decides to become a “bully goat.”  Riverfront Theater, May 21st & 22nd, 1 p.m.

 

 

Made in Dagenham

Based on a true story, Made in Dagenham portrays a decisive moment in 1960s England, when the fight for equal rights and pay was led by ordinary working-class women with one foot in the kitchen and one foot on the factory floor.  In the face of angry husbands, condescending bosses, and a belligerent local community, the women of Dagenham stood together and pushed boundaries for the rights and expectations of women everywhere.  Movies at Midway, May 27th, 7 p.m.
