Opera for the Cure

Oct. 15 and 17 Opera for the Cure Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St. Fri. 7:30 p.m., Sun. 2 p.m. $19-79, 345.0606, operaomaha.org Cancer is the bogeyman of diseases. While a night or afternoon of music cannot truly ward off the terror, it can do the next best thing by raising money for research to find a cure. That’s the backdrop for a concert whose score and libretto tell the story of one woman’s journey with breast cancer, from frightening diagnosis to the rigors of treatment to the relief of healing, ending on a note of hope. The Opera Omaha Chorus and Valmont Voices in Residence are joined by the Omaha Symphony, narrators and dancers for an empowering concert. Dramatic lighting and projected video images on multiple screens key off the music, words, emotions and meanings. Richard Buckley conducts. Helena Binder directs. Five dollars of each purchased ticket benefits the Nebraska Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
