* Note to my LiR course participants: This presentation will illustrate my first lecture in the ongoing 2011 Fall Course. I will definitely attend it and answer any questions about the opera in the break.
Drop-in fee for these DVD presentations is $ 1.- Coffee and muffins are available in the break in Abbotsford’s elegant, old fashioned dining room for $1.- each.
The Abbotsford Community Centre is located in the Glebe at 950 Bank St. – across Lansdowne Park. Two major bus routes (#1 and #7) stop right outside the front door. There is parking in front of the building, but if it’s full, there is also free 3 hour parking on the surrounding side streets as well as free parking at Lansdowne Park on days when there is no major event.
