November 6, 2009 – Upcoming Shows of Local Interest, Maurice Sendak’s operetta, and Free and Legal Downloads


The Opera Theater of Pittsburgh is presenting Maurice Sendak’s operetta, Brundibar, on 7:30 p.m. Friday; 6 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the CAPA Theater, 111 Ninth St., Downtown. Tickets are $15-$25. 412-456-6666;

 Written in the early 1940s, "Brundibar" received its first real performance not in Prague or Vienna, but in Theresienstadt, that vile camp and "model ghetto" for orphaned Jews who would later be shipped to their deaths in Auschwitz.

The Post-Gazette takes a look at The Society for Contemporary Craft’s exhibit , "Transformation 7: Contemporary Works in Wood"

Interested in enhancing your clothing with electronics? In this introductory class, learn to create soft circuits by sewing with conductive thread. Students will create a light-up cuff bracelet from industrial felt, battery, and LEDs.

No previous experience with sewing, electronics, computing, or soldering is needed.

Participants with favorite sewing scissors and needlenose/beading pliers should bring them, however we will have enough to share. All materials will be provided.
