A Game of Chance game of chance announcement

January 13, 2014 (Jackson) - Dr. Christopher Shelt and Belhaven Vocal Arts will present a hilarious opera for grown-ups; A Game of Chance will premiere on January 18, 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Belhaven Concert Hall. Admission is complimentary.

A Game of Chance, by Seymour Barab, is a comic opera and perfect for first time opera-goers. This opera will make you laugh and it will make you think. Set in the 1950s, three newspaper writers dream of a life that is exciting and different from their hum-drum lives as typists. Their wishes are mysteriously answered by strange visitors and they end up learning to be careful what they wish for.

This is just one of the many exciting events from Belhaven’s School of the Arts. Check out Arts Ablaze for plays, dance and music concerts, poetry readings, gallery exhibits and more happening this year.
