Beyond The Close: The Burning Fiery Furnace Chamber Opera on March 28

The Church of the Transfiguration  (the Little Church around the corner) is having a special chamber opera performance next Friday, March 28 at 7:30 pm, and really what's better than being able to say "Oh tonight? Why, we're going to the opera." Best of all, tickets for students are only $15. Yay! Oh yeah, about the show...the great oracle Wikipedia says... The Burning Fiery Furnace is one of the three Parables for Church Performances composed by Benjamin Britten, dating from 1966, and is his Opus 77. The Burning Fiery Furnace tells the story of Nebuchadnezzar (the historical Nebuchadnezzar II) and the three Israelites, Ananias, Misael and Asarias (corresponding Babylonian names: Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego), who were thrown into a furnace for their refusal to worship Nebuchadnezzar's image of gold. However, God saves them from death, as the voice of an angel joins the Israelites in a 'Benedicte'.
