CCC will host performance of opera
Portland Opera To Go, an organization that provides children and families with the opportunity to engage in the world of opera through bringing programming to communities in the Northwest, will present a production at the Chehalem Cultural Center this month.
The group will perform Gaetano Donizettis The Elixir of Love.
Its the 1930s on Americas western plains, the CCC wrote in a release. Cocky daredevil Belcore lands his bi-plane nearby and cozies up to Adina, the town sweetheart. Her would-be boyfriend Nemorino is in despair, until he downs a double dose of Dr. Dulcamaras top secret love potion and wins back the girl of his dreams.
The opera begins at noon Saturday at the CCC ballroom. The venue opens at 11 a.m.
