Do you know the meaning of Christmas?
“The Promise,” a dramatic Christmas Musical will be presented at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, at the Hazelwood Baptist Church in Waynesville.
The Adult Choir, “Compass” Children’s Choir, and “Exalt” Worship Arts Ministry will share the story of the long-awaited promised Messiah, Jesus Christ. As the story unfolds, you will discover the true meaning of Christmas and the reason Jesus came as a baby over 2,000 years ago.
Everyone is invited and admission is free. A nursery will be provided and a finger-food reception will follow the musical. For more information or directions, call the church office at 828.456.9434.
MET Opera on the big screen
There will be a “Live via Satellite” screening of the MET Opera’s “L’Amour De Loin” at 12:55 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Highlands Performing Arts Center.
Aquitaine, 12th century. Jaufré Rudel, Prince of Blaye, yearns for a distant love but is convinced he will never find it. A pilgrim from overseas asserts that the woman he seeks does exist. Jaufré can no longer think of anything but her. Back in the East, the pilgrim meets the Countess of Tripoli, Clémence, and tells her that a prince-troubadour celebrates her in his songs as his “love from afar.” Offended at first, she later begins to dream of this strange and distant lover. And the story continues.
