Clinton opera preview details




Here's your first chance to check out "Billy Blythe," Bonnie Montgomery's much, much-anticipated opera about Bill Clinton's young life in Hot Springs: Montgomery will stage what she's calling a "workshop performance" of three scenes at the Women's City Club at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19. An after party at White Water will follow.

Montgomery promises ticket information shortly.

Here are the three scenes:

The event will showcase six singers who will perform a thirty-minute excerpt of scenes from the opera. The scenes will include a steamy New Orleans love theme between Roger and Virginia Clinton, an aria with Billy and Virginia about his deceased father, a tableau following big wins at the horse races and a night of domestic drama in the Clinton household.
