Are you ready to hear some bel canto? Do you have your libretto? Well put your opera capes on! It's time to enjoy "A Holiday at the Opera" at the Osborne Homestead Museum! Celebrate the holidays at the Osborne Homestead Museum in Derby, Connecticut and learn about some of the world's famous operas.
For more than thirty years, volunteers have created the gorgeous holiday decorations at the museum. These talented and committed volunteers are Derby Garden Society, Garden Club of Orange, Long Hill Garden Club, Naugatuck Garden Club, Olde Ripton Garden Club of Shelton, Oxford Garden Club, Jen Plasky AIFD, Roxbury Bridgewater Garden Club, Women Redefining Retirement Milford, and Ye Olde Kellogg Garden Club.
This year's holiday theme will pay tribute to Frances Osborne Kellogg's love of the opera. She frequently attended the Metropolitan Opera, and her uncle Henry Krehbiel was a famous music and opera critic. As president of the Women's Club, Frances invited many opera singers, such as Caterina Jarbora, John Brownlee, and Marjorie Lawrence, to perform in Derby. Because of her love of this musical genre, each room will represent operas seen by Frances and her family and friends.
November 24-December 17, Thursday-Sunday.
