    In celebration of the LHE/PAC's 10th Anniversary, the Portland Symphony Orchestra will be performing a very special concert with Broadway and Metropolitan Opera soprano, Alyson Cambridge on Thursday, October 24th at 7:00 pm!

In addition to vocalist Alyson Cambridge, the October 24th show will feature guest conductor, Erin Freeman.

    Met Opera Live in HD: Manon

    Manon’s story—from innocent country girl to celebrated courtesan to destitute prisoner—is one of the great tragic tales in literature and music. Lisette Oropesa stars as the irresistible title character, the tragic beauty who yearns for the finer things in life, in Laurent Pelly’s revealing production. Michael Fabiano is the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon proves their undoing. Maurizio Benini conducts Massenet’s sensual score. Local opera enthusiast Joe De Vito will be continuing his Opera Lecture Series on Thursday, October 17th at 3:00 pm in the LHE/PAC Seminar Room (free admission).
