Easter Sunrise Service.
Imagine the rising sun, the magic of Easter morning, gathering with your friends and family, as Fr. Gordon Kamai of Christ Church leads the celebration of Christ's resurrection. An optional hot breakfast in Lyles Dining Hall, at a very reasonable price, follows the service. Reservations are required for breakfast.
Opera at Oakhurst.
Carmen and the Consequences One of the most interesting sensations in operatic history occurred on March 3, 1875, when Bizet’s much-anticipated opera Carmen received its first performance, at the Opéra Comique in Paris. The first act was well received by the audience, but after that things went downhill fast; people left in droves during the intermissions. Those critics who stayed to the end were largely appalled at what they had seen and heard. The fiasco of the opening night did not, however, signal failure for Bizet’s opera. Far from it. Carmen quickly went on to become an international hit.
