The Warner Theatre located on Main Street in Torrington is presenting a series of performances sure to warm up January in the Litchfield Hills.
On January 17-25, the Warner Stage Company is presenting "The 39 Steps". Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have THE 39 STEPS, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre!
Also on January 17 & 18 Momix is celebrating it's 35th anniversary with a Celebration of company and audience favorites, reating a show that breaks the bounds of the conventional and enters an aesthetic orbit all its own.
The film Rocky will be shown on the Warner's 50' screen at 8 p.m. on January 23 and the tickets are just $5. ROCKY tells the rags to riches American Dream story of small-time boxer Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), an uneducated but kind-hearted debt collector for a loan shark in the city of Philadelphia, who gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship.
To end the month, Met Opera Live in HD presents Offenbach's Les Contes D'Hoffmannon January 31, at 1 pm. The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach's operatic masterpiece, in the Met's wild, kaleidoscopic production. Soprano Hibla Gerzmava faces the operatic hurdle of singing all three heroines—each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann's desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score.
A complimentary pre-opera lecture will be presented by Dr. Marguerite Mullee and offered to all ticketholders two-hours before broadcast begins in the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre lobby.
