    Friday, July 1, and Saturday, September 10, 7:00 pm

    Rigoletto is considered the first of Verdi’s masterpieces, among today’s most performed operas.  Under the baton of Nicola Luisotti, this new production of Rigoletto marks director Claus Guth’s first collaboration with the Paris Opera, and was recorded April 26, 2016.  Between the frivolous, licentious Duke, and Gilda, a victim of the ignorance which holds her captive, stands the double-faceted character of the hunchback Rigoletto, both buffoon and curse-obsessed father. Baritone Quinn Kelsey has sung Rigoletto in ten productions since his 1991 debut.  Soprano Olga Peretyatko first sang Gilda at La Fenice and at the Festival Avenches.

    Tickets $16.  Peak Partners save 10-20%.  OperaHD Festival Pass event.

      Giuseppe Verdi, Opéra national de Paris, stars Olga Peretyatko and Quinn Kelsey

      Friday, July 1, and Saturday, September 10, 7:00 pm

      Rigoletto is considered the first of Verdi’s masterpieces, among today’s most performed operas.  Under the baton of Nicola Luisotti, this new production of Rigoletto marks director Claus Guth’s first collaboration with the Paris Opera, and was recorded April 26, 2016.  Between the frivolous, licentious Duke, and Gilda, a victim of the ignorance which holds her captive, stands the double-faceted character of the hunchback Rigoletto, both buffoon and curse-obsessed father. Baritone Quinn Kelsey has sung Rigoletto in ten productions since his 1991 debut.  Soprano Olga Peretyatko first sang Gilda at La Fenice and at the Festival Avenches.

      Tickets $16.  Peak Partners save 10-20%.  OperaHD Festival Pass event.

    We welcome you to drop in whenever you may need. The Bereavement/Grief Support Group is open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. There is no fee.

    The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

    Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration of the changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight-session blocks.

    Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; no individual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

    Group 2: Monday evenings, 6–7:30 p.m.

    If you have questions about these support groups, contact Virginia Fry or Jean Semprebon at 802-223-1878.

    The recent (2010-2016) discovery of key components of indigenous Western Wabanaki food systems in Vermont and New Hampshire has important implications for understanding regional Late Woodland and Early Colonial Period subsistence.  Over 35 cultivars, many of them in danger of extinction, four intensive agricultural systems, four highly endangered traditional ceremonies, and an unexpectedly complex deep-time cuisine comprise the main body of these new findings.  In addition to their obvious archaeological implications, these cultural fragments are being carefully and reverently reconfigured as a viable, alternative “Food sovereignty/security” system for future use by the region’s indigenous peoples.

    Did you know that 1 out of 5 individuals in the US over the age of 12 experiences hearing loss? As one ages, the risk of hearing loss increases yet it is highly underdiagnosed and undertreated in the senior population. Untreated hearing loss can reduce one’s quality of life, resulting in social isolation and less engagement with family and friends. It has also more recently been linked to an increased risk of falls, reduced memory, and dementia. Dr. Elizabeth Adams is a Clinical Professor from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Vermont and a Vermont licensed audiologist. In this workshop, she and her students will be talking about hearing loss and its effects.  If you are concerned about your hearing or the hearing of a family member or friend, this workshop is for you.

    11 a.m.–noon

    Montpelier Senior Activity Center, 223-2518
