The opera, "Die Walkure," can be seen in a local theater. But not the Bill Heard Theatre, nor the Springer Opera House. It's on a screen at Carmike 15, 5555 Whittlesey Blvd.
"Die Walkure," the second of the four operas of the "Ring of the Nibelung" by Richard Wagner, is probably best known for a section of the music called "The Ride of the Valkyries." It's been highlighted in many movies and television shows, including "Apocalypse Now," played while helicopters fly overhead in Vietnam.
The opera can be seen live from the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy, at 11 a.m. Dec. 7 and repeated at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 15.
Others in the series are the Bolshoi Ballet's "The Nutcracker," live from the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, Dec. 19; the Royal Ballet's "Giselle," live from the Royal Opera House in London; "Cavalleria Rusticana" and "Pagliacci," live from the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, April 19.
Tickets are $25 for each.
