Today and today only is national talk like a pirate day. So today and today only if you call 502-584-7777 and talk like a pirate, you can get 50% off tickets to Kentucky Opera's Pirates of Penzance. Good for October 26 and 28 performances only and you must talk like a pirate to get discount.
Last night at Kentucky Center's Todd Hall all the elements of Otello came together in the Sitzprobe. This is the first time that the chorus, the principal artists, and all the members of the Louisville Orchestra came together to run through the entire opera. This is always an exciting moment, and one of the KYO Marketing department has captured some of that on video which we will be getting online as soon as we can.
Tonight I will be capturing footage of the fight scene in the first act. Our supernumeraries have been getting a lot of extra training in stage combat from the fine folks at the Fraiser Arms Museum. One of the Kentucky Opera Studio Artists, Angel Connor, has been training every morining at the museum. I can't wait to see all his hard work come together in an exciting melee tonight.
