Divaria Productions Presents Othello: The Opera & Play Enmeshed

September 14, 8 pm Othello: The Opera and Play Enmeshed is an exploration of the timeless classic through theatre, opera and dance. The project will feature selections from Verdi’s opera in Italian (singers, string quartet, pianist, stage director), parts of Shakespeare’s text with professional actors, and dancers, all three of which will transmit the essence of the story through different mediums. The story of Othello concerns themes of jealousy, misplaced trust and exclusion, all of which, though crafted 400 years ago, are extraordinarily relevant today. Bay Street Theater, www.baystreet.org

Humble Pie

September 14, 8 pm One of rock’s seminal incubators of British Blues talent, Humble Pie, was born in 1969 when Steve Marriott, Peter Frampton, Greg Ridley and Jerry Shirley, convened at Steve’s Essex home. The band took both sides of the Atlantic by storm with hits like, 30 Days In The Hole, I Don’t Need No Doctor, Hot ‘n Nasty and Fool For a Pretty Face. Today, the band lives on with a new line-up but the soul of the original group intact, overseen by original drummer, Jerry Shirley. Kick off the fall with some classic British rock ‘n roll!
