Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

February 22: Listen and watch the Music of Art: "Daughter of the Regiment"


The Music of Art: Daughter of the Regiment

When: Thursday February 22 7:00 p.m.
Where: Indianapolis Museum of Art, Pulliam Great Hall (Free)

Members of the Indianapolis Opera Ensemble will perform excerpts from Daughter of the Regiment (La fille du rĂ©giment), a comedic opera composed by Gaetano Donizetti and first performed for French audiences in 1840. The story follows the romantic entanglements of Marie, a daughter in love with a peasant soldier but pressured to marry an aristocrat’s son. After the concert, see works of art in IMA’s European galleries that offer views of class differences in 19th-century French life.

The full opera will be performed March 9 and 11 at Clowes Memorial Hall. For details visit www.indyopera.org. If this event sounds interesting, you should check out the collaboration of Indianapolis Opera and the great Chinese artist Master Au on Valentine's Day.
