“Three Nights at the Opera: Historical Recreations of Performances at the Wright Leppien Opera House” is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19 and Dec. 2 at the Opera House, which has been restored to its former glory in recent years following a devastating fire in 2010.
You can reserve tickets for “Three Nights at the Opera” at the Oscar E. Remick Heritage Center for the Performing Arts website. “Part One” took place on Oct. 21, but tickets are still available for “Part Two.”
