During the 19th century the road to success for French composers ran through the doors of the Paris Opera. A triumphant premiere there would assure one of a lifetime of celebrity and commissions. Many major composers like Bizet, Debussy, Dukas, Faure and Lalo failed to have premieres at L’Opera. Berlioz had only one chance. Early in his career “Benvenuto Cellini” received just four performances. After them the hallowed portals remained closed to him for the rest of his life. That is not a reason to neglect his operatic output. Jeffrey Engel will focus on the operatic side of this important symphonist and play excerpts from his oeuvre.
Artists have celebrated the coldest season in a variety of ways, from paintings of snow-capped mountains and skaters tumbling on ice, to chessboards and ceramic figurines of the “new year.” Delight in the sights of the season in a virtual tour of “Winter at the Wadsworth.”

If you are a caregiver or are coping with the loss of a loved one, we invite you to join us at 1:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month at the Bloomfield Senior Center. Assuming responsibility for the care of a family member with health or memory problems often begins with the challenge of learning our way through the healthcare system. Sadly, but not infrequently, it progresses to learning about the grief process. It often helps to talk and share with others who have had similar experiences.
