Carmike's next Opera in Cinema is Sunday

Carmike Cinemas and Emerging Pictures will present "I Vespri Siciliani" ("The Sicilian Vespers") from Teatro Regio di Torino in Torino, Italy. The Verdi opera is based on a true story about a 13th century Sicilian rebellion against French forces trying to invade the country. It blends military intrigue with a story of the love between a French duchess and a Sicilian rebel.

The performers include Maria Agresti, Gregory Kunde and Franco Vassallo.

It can be seen live at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Screening Room of Carmike Cinemas at the Ritz. If you can't make it for that screening, the taped opera can be seen again at 7 p.m. June 5.

Tickets are $25.

The next opera is "Anna Bolena" at 2 p.m. June 17 and 7 p.m. June 19.
