Bathurst Combined Probus Club 

A group of thirty-five persons consisting of Bathurst Combined Probus Club members, their partners, and friends recently came together to attend a Live Streaming Metropolitan Opera performance of Rigoletto.

Settings and costumes were sumptuous, singing superb, and the additional talks from the Director, Set and Costume Designers, as well as the three singers portraying the main characters of the opera being Rigoletto, his daughter Gilda, and the Duke of Mantua were bonuses one would not get when attending a performance in person. Close-ups of the performers meant that much of the emotions of the action were captured.

Bathurst is truly blessed to have Stephen Champion, Manager of Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre programming not just live performances, but also streaming the Metropolitan Opera and National Theatre Live programs. It allows those who love the art of opera and theatre performed by the best artists in the world to enjoy the shows in Bathurst. Thank you, Stephen Champion.

Our Club will continue to support such programs whenever it can as part of our trips and outings agenda this year.

Bathurst Probus Combined Club meets at 10.30am on every third Tuesday of each month at Panthers Bathurst, 132 Piper Street, Bathurst. 

Members join Probus for fun, fellowship, and friendship. Members and their guests are most welcome to participate in our Club’s activities and outings.
