Late 19th-century Paris opera-goers felt cheated if their evenings-out didn't include a ballet scene somewhere in the performance. When Giuseppe Verdi was told that he had to write such a score and insert it into the drama, interrupting the action, he was apalled. When told that he had do do it if he wanted to make any money, he became more tractable. Hence our featured work this week: the ballet suite from Il Trovatore -- just for Paris.

Mary Helen McCay, the First Lady of Florida Institute of Technology and an accomplished engineer, will speak Saturday, May 20, as the Friends of the Eau Gallie Library hosts a screening of the movie Hidden Figures.

Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite used to be one of those "Introduction to classical music" pieces than many first heard as children -- like Peter and the Wolf and The Nutcracker. The suite had its origins in Ibsen's play of the same name, a play not intended for children by any means, but the imagery of Grieg's music makes the scenes come alive to young and old alike. We revisit this old favorite as our featured work this week, up in the Attic.
