With Two Female Afficionados and a Naughty One
All programs are free, and registering by calling 359-2244 is appreciated.
The Orangeburg Library hosts two programs for March Women’s Month that lovers of opera and film won’t want to miss.
This Sunday, March 15 at 2 PM, opera expert, Helen Rosenthal, will introduce Bizet’s CARMEN , a film starring the legendary Placido Domingo and conducted by Lorin Maazel. The Naughty One is Carmen, herself, played flawlessly by Julia Migenes-Johnson. Pauline Kael, hailed this adaptation of Carmen, as “the very best.”
On Monday, March 23 at 1 PM, the Orangeburg Library resumes its Senior Specials with Movies. We have invited film expert, Renee Weiner, who has garnered raves for her programs at the JCC Rockland, to discuss the Oscar-winning films of 1959 including Some Like It Hot, Ben Hur, North By Northwest and Diary of Anne Frank, in a program she calls: “1959: Fifty Years Ago in Classic Film.” For all film-lovers, this will be an eye-opener.
And a female author of acclaim, Thrity Umrigar who wrote “The Space Between Us” will provide the topic for the Book & Bag Lunch Book Club on Tuesday, March 24 at 1:30 PM. Even if you are not a member, all are welcome to come and participate, and enjoy the complimentary snacks provided by the Library.
