A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

Guest speaker Anne Russell Sullivan from L.A. Opera's Community Engagement Program will discuss Andre Previn's powerful opera based on Tennessee William's classic play.

Clinging desperately to a masquerade of Southern grace, Blanche DuBois moves into her sister's cramped apartment, creating all the wrong kinds of sparks with her crude brother-in-law. When dark truths about Blanche's past begin to emerge, her world comes apart at the seams in a spiral of violence and madness.
Door prize provided compliments of the L.A. Opera.

SWEET DREAMS

Patsy Cline was the first female solo artist to be elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Marrying the unique singing voice of Patsy Cline to a powerhouse performance by Jessica Lange, director Karel Reisz creates an extraordinary portrait of the passionate, fun-loving, soft-spoken, loud-living Patsy!
