Opera goes Wild West
A comedic opera about love in the Wild West takes the stage during High Desert Opera’s three performances of “The Elixir of Love.”
Technically, Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti did not set the opera in this area, but actor and director Thom King adapted the show for a local audience and is in the cast. He is from Baltimore, Md.
Local chorus member Jomas Gibson, 24, called the show, “an awesome opportunity for all people to enjoy a combination of creativity and comedic opera.”
The performances are 7 p.m. Friday, July 20, and Saturday, July 28, at the Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.
Tickets range in price from $10 to $39 for adults and $10 to $35 for children and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at highdesertopera.org, 523-9605, or at Roper Music.
Another performance will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 21, at the Delta Performing Arts Center, 820 Grand Ave.
Tickets are $20 for all ages and are available at the door, and at Delta City Market, Delta Ace Hardware and the Delta County Independent.
