OCTOBER 21-23, and OCTOBER 29, 2011-TACONIC OPERA PRESENTS VERDI’S NABUCCO: Come and experience what catapulted Verdi's career and made him an opera superstar! This dramatic opera's historical setting is the era of the biblical King Nebuchadnezzar (Nabucco), the King of Babylonia, who conquered and exiled the Jews from their homeland in 586 BCE. These events, which include scenes at the temple in Jerusalem and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, are interwoven with a political and romantic plot. This opera was first introduced during the Italian struggle for independence and became an instant success as the Italians could relate to the plight of the Jews. It contains some of Verdi's best choral pieces, including Va pensiero, and requires powerful performances by its lead singers, especially the soprano. Many diva’s have been forced into early retirement as a result of tackling this Verdian villainess role. Performances are at the Yorktown Stage, 1974 Commerce Street, Yorktown Heights, NY, on Friday, October 21 and Saturday October 22, 2011 at 8 PM, and a Sunday matinee October 23 at 2 PM.

Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come Brought to Life by the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s Staged Reading of Dickens’ Christmas Carol I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it. Their faithful Friend and Servant, C. D. December, 1843. A new holiday tradition was started a few years ago when the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival presented a staged reading of the Fezziwig section of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in the Mansion at Boscobel. The tradition will continue and expand in December when the actors return to the Mansion for three consecutive weekends to read of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come from the classic novella. Performances are: Friday, December 2 at 7pm; Saturday, December 3 at 6pm; Friday, December 9 at 7pm; Saturday, December 10 at 6pm; Friday, December 16 at 7pm; Saturday, December 17 at 6pm. Tickets for all performances are $75 and may be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/202127. For more information visit www.hvshakespeare.org or call 845-809-5750. "Lead on!" said Scrooge. "Lead on! The night is waning fast, and it is precious time to me, I know. Lead on, Spirit!" In the warm glow of the great entry hall of the Mansion at Boscobel, decorated for the holidays, HVSF actors Richard Ercole, Eleanor Handley, Katie Hartke and Stephan Paul Johnson, will retell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge. Under the direction of HVSF Founding Artistic Director Terrence O’Brien, the actors will take the audience along on the long night’s journey from Christmas Past to that which is Yet-to-Come in their trademark style, closer to Dickens than Disney, bringing the text to life without extra frills. The reading will be followed by a special holiday celebration feast and libations in the lower hall."It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour."
