Safe signals from Buffett’s train deal
The so-called Washington National Opera invites citizens, visitors, and guests to sample opera and is offering $25 tickets to performances of Richard Strauss's "Ariadne Auf Naxos" and Richard Wagner's "Gotterdammerung" (without acting or sets). Apparently, you are supposed to whisper the word "Express" when you order your tickets for the Nov 5, 7, 8, 10, 13, or 15, 2009 performances.
The Szymanowski Quartet offers a FREE concert tomorrow night at 8 PM at the Library of Congress.
The Warsaw Village Band stages counter-performance to the first Washington National Opera concert performance of Richard Wagner's Gotterdammerung on Saturday at 7:30 PM at the National Geographic Society. Tickets ranging from about $7.50 to $12.00.
The Fine Arts Quartet perform a FREE concert on Sunday, November 8, 2009 at 3 p.m. at the National Academies of Science Auditorium 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W. (Photo ID required.)
