Shameless Plug Time, part 2

Dear Live Opera Lover,

What? You didn't know you were a "live opera lover?" Well, please consider yourself among our "potential appreciators" and read on...

Imagine a high art form that incorporates all other art forms -- literature, dance, theater, visual arts, and of course, vocal and instrumental music -- and crystallizes them into a powerfully moving and engaging experience.

Imagine intensive preparation for set, costume, prop design and construction; stagin; and painstaking rehearsal coming together for a special sharing of gifts and palpable energy between performers and audience in a unique moment in time which has never existed before and can never come again -- even in the same production.

There's nothing else like it!

You have an opportunity to make a difference our area cultural scene by donating an item or service and/or attending a special fundraises benefiting Elgin Opera (formerly O.P.E.R.A.), the opera company "in your own backyard," which has enjoyed serving the Fox Valley/west suburban area for five years.

The fundraiser is a luscious Italian dinner with silent auction and a lively program of "interactive opera, etc.," including a sneak preview of the 2007 Madame Butterfly production, Sunday, October 1, 5:00 p.m. at Villa Verone Restaurant, Geneva, IL.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Elgin Opera's mission is "to create and nourish a greater appreciation of the classical vocal arts and to educate through professional performances and community outreach programs."

Our steady, very successful development builds new audiences with each event and ranges from opera excerpt programs for students and seniors to fully staged productions of Strauss' Die Fledermaus (2005) and Verdi's La Traviata (spring 2006).

"Artists are the vehicles of laws much higher than themselves..." -- Herbert Whone

Please help service Elgin Opera's fleet of vehicles with a silent auction donation and we welcome you to come enjoy a leg of our journey.

Gratefully and sincerely,
Elgin Opera Fundraising Committee
