Kitsap Opera receives Birkenfeld Memorial grant

Kitsap Opera recently received a grant from the C. Keith Birkenfeld Memorial Trust, through The Seattle Foundation.

The organization received $10,000 to go toward the production of Donizetti’s “The Daughter of the Regiment.”

The opera will be presented at the Admiral Theatre Nov. 13 and 15.

Kitsap Opera, under the direction of Leone Cottrell-Adkins, produces high quality grand opera comparable to bigger cities in the area and gives talented singers the opportunity for professional growth and experience.

The organization also is working on its annual fundraiser to be held at the Sons of Norway Hall in Bremerton tomorrow, Aug. 8.

The event will feature songs from the shows “Oklahoma” and “Girl from the Golden West.” There will be a no-host bar at 6 p.m., fried chicken country-style dinner at 7 p.m. followed by the show at 8 p.m.

Call (360) 792-2265 for reservations.
