4:00 pm TAPESTRY OPERA PRESENTS…Bandits in the Valley
There are two sides to every story! And now, two venues… Toronto’s Tapestry Opera presents a delightful two-scene opera about late 19th century Ontario, when bandits thrived in the dark corners between stiff Victorian values and the influx of new
immigrants. Will a wealthy land owner and his guests be distracted by a travelling Gilbert & Sullivan troupe long enough for a greedy bandit to break into his house?
And what of the bandit who has promised his love to both the leading actress and the house’s maid? (limited to 60 patrons)
at the Westben Barn & Farmhouse
The Barn 6688 County Road 30, Campbellford
705-653-5508 or 1-877-883-5777 www.westben.ca

Back by popular demand, and looking for more requests! Westben roasts up

Westben performers. Visit the wine tent and food auction tables for delicious treats all in support of Westben.
