Murder Mystery Dinner Theater comes to the Opera House! The Pocahontas Opera House will host the premier of “The Ghost of the Opera House,” a murder mystery dinner theater to be held Friday, October 27 and Sunday, October 29 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm both evenings. Tickets are $35 and include the play, dinner and beverages. For years we have heard stories about ghost sightings at the Opera House… People would hear strange noises and see flashes of light. Last year when the Greenbrier Paranormal Society from Lewisburg inspected the building, our fears were confirmed: The Opera House is definitely haunted. The Opera House hopes to get to the bottom of this ghost business by inviting audience members to help them solve the mystery that surrounds the Opera House. (They also hope to raise some money to fund their programming and purchase black out curtains so they can show films and host other events during daylight hours at the Opera House.) The play, written by Arla Ralston, Pocahontas County Opera House Foundation Board President and playwright, centers on the story of Lily Lacey, a local girl who becomes a famous singer and returns to perform at the Opera House in 1917. During the course of the evening, the audience will watch her story unfold and be able to ask questions of the characters before casting their votes as to “who dun it.”

Although its beginnings have been lost to the mists of time, Andean music has been played in South America for thousands of years. It is one of the few prehistoric art forms to survive five hundred years of European occupation. Unlike gold and jewels, it could neither be melted nor stolen. Many indigenous South Americans believe that it is the music that preserves the heart and soul of the ancient ones. This beautiful and powerful music continues to be played from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego, and none play it better than the four Lopez brothers—Fernando, Luis, Bolivar and Jorge—as Andes Manta. Natives of the Ecuadorian Andes, the brothers are classically trained musicians who learned their traditional folk music as it has been learned for thousands of years, passed from father to son, and brother to brother. From the lyrical sound of the quena (Andean Flute) to the haunting tones of the six-foot long pan-pipes, Andes Manta performs in the purest and most authentic way using more than 35 traditional instruments. Far from being melancholy, the music of Andes Manta is a joyous celebration of daily life. Andes Manta is well known to presenters all over America for their virtuosity and extraordinary performances. From Carnegie Hall to the Discovery Channel, from the National Cathedral to Lincoln Center and hundreds of schools, colleges and universities, and performing arts venues across the country, their powerful and moving performances have played to standing ovation after standing ovation. Music starts at 7:30 p.m.; $10.00 admission.
