opera-smJoin your WALLA friends for a day at the Opera on Saturday, January 17. Meet your friends at Puccini's for lunch at 11:00. Puccini's is located at 300 Brown Street across from Wabash 9 theater in West Lafayette. A private room has been reserved. You may order from a varied menu that includes pizza, calzones, pastas, sandwiches and chicken dinners. Wine and beer are available, and if you have room left, you may enjoy a tiramisu for dessert.

Around 12:30 we will walk across the street to the Wabash 9 Theater where Lehar's enchanting operetta, The Merry Widow, will be shown live from the Met in New York starting at 12:55. Renée Fleming stars as the woman who captivates all of Paris, Nathan Gunn co-stars as Danilo, and Kelli O'Hara is Valencienne. Sir Andrew Davis conducts. Of course if you prefer you may go directly to the show.

If you are attending, it is suggested that you park your car in the Wabash 9 parking lot immediately east of Puccini's parking. Make sure you DO NOT park in the shopping center parking area. Cars are towed.
