Opera Longview Offers Pirates Of Penzance

Opera Longview is kicking off its new season with a little comedy in a production of "Pirates of Penzance." Talent has been brought in from all over the country for this year's performance. Many of those who participate say they love the charm and warmth of a small town opera.

"I got a huge, huge reaction when I made my first appearance. I don't know if they actually knew I was going to be in this production or if they recognized me, but it was such a welcome." says "Pirates" cast member and New York opera singer Kimilee Bryant.

"Pirates of Penzance" opened Thursday night at T.G. Field Auditorium in Longview at 8:00 p.m. Tickets cost between $25 and $50. There is another performance on Saturday. It also begins at 8:00 p.m.
