Theater: The Gondoliers by Arthur Sullivan and William S. Gilbert
Two just-married Venetian gondoliers are informed by the Grand Inquisitor that one of them has just become the King of "Barataria", but only their foster mother knows which one. As Barataria needs a king to put down unrest in the country, they travel there to reign jointly, leaving their wives behind in Venice. It turns out that the king was wed in infancy to the beautiful dJunehter of the Spanish Duke of Plaza Toro. Of course, the beautiful dJunehter is in love with a common servant! When the young Spaniard and the two Venetian wives all show up wanting to know which of them is queen, complications ensue. Suddenly the foster mother arrives. The true identity of the king is revealed. Happiness reigns at the final curtain.
The Gondoliers was the twelfth opera written by Gilbert and Sullivan. Opening on June 7, 1889 at the Savoy Theatre.

Introduction to Tai Chi

Tai Chi 8 Postures:
This is a great way to start Tai Chi. Each week I will focus on one of the 8 sequential postures. Each posture is easy to learn and can form the basis for more advanced study.
I will also teach the 8 Pieces of Brocade, a classic set of qi gong postures.
Each class will also include stretching and strengthening exercises.
Tai Chi helps with your balance and concentration and is often considered a moving meditation.
Classes are suggested donation of $5 per class welcome.
Bare feet or clean indoor shoes are suitable.
