Island City Opera hosted its first-ever Opera Concert in Franklin Park on Saturday. The opera company, an offshoot of Virago Theatre Company, will continue its inaugural season with Elks Club performances of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, in January 2015, and two one-act operas, Rossini’s comedy Il Signor Bruschino and Puccini’s Il Tabarro, the following March. Here's a short video of some of Saturday's performances; additional information is available on the opera company's website.
