Art Organization: Newport Opera House

The Newport Opera House was built on the second floor of the original Town Hall and Courthouse in 1872. The building was destroyed by fire in 1886 and as of today gone through many facelifts.  Considered the largest stage north of Boston, the stage design and permanent fixtures were created by New York based companies.

As with many Opera Houses in the Upper Valley, The Newport Opera House prides itself on affordable quality entertainment, diverse cultural events and sustainable outlets for the community.  Consider the recent performance of Oliver (photos) last year which drew large audiences.

The Annual Halloween Masquerade Ball kicks off the fall season for adults.  Check the website for details.  And for the whole family, get your tickets soon for the opening November 3rd of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, followed by the opening of The Great Gatsby, on November 17.


Artist: Mary Gerakaris, Photographer

Mary’s homepage expresses her need to “seek beauty in natural and manmade objects.” With earthy tones, you quickly understand what her eye is capturing. From teaching workshops in Photography with Osher, to exhibiting throughout the United States, she subdues colors and brings out textures and patterns to suit her composition. Here is an artist who shares her work widely.
