Opera at Claremont

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Professional opera singers Robert Mellon, Maria Natale and Carlton Moe will perform arias from the Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi operas at the Claremont Hotel on Saturday, Aug. 13, at 8:15 p.m.

Robert Peterson will collaborate on the piano. Drawing on her extensive research in period newspapers and diaries, organizer Arlene Palmer Schwind will provide entertaining historical commentary and reveal the “harmony” on the stage, the “discord” behind the scenes and what opera-goers and vicious critics of the 1840s had to say about it all.

Tickets cost $12 for non-hotel guests. Call 244-5036.

The Claremont Hotel is at 22 Claremont Rd.
