Event Description

The Soap Gallery, Opera Western Reserve, and Lit Youngstown are combining their resources for an evening of art, music, and literature. The Scottish-flavored “Highland Fling” will start at 6:00 pm on Friday, October 13th at The Soap Gallery, 117 South Champion Street, in downtown Youngstown. The evening will feature live artistic creation, live musical performances by Young Artists of Opera Western Reserve, poetry readings and a bagpiper in performance.

The Highland Fling will precede Opera Western Reserve’s November 10th production of Donizetti’s opera, Lucia di Lammermoor, based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott. Lovers of art, music, and literature will come together with hopes of developing new audiences for Soap Gallery’s monthly art exhibits, OWR’s live performances, and Lit Youngstown’s literary arts projects.

Hors d’oeuvres, with a Scottish tinge, will be provided. A Scotch tasting will cap the evening; beer and wine will also be available at the cash bar.

Soloists will perform arias from Lucia di Lammermoor, members of Lit Youngstown will read classic and modern Scottish poetry, and artists will create paintings that will be auctioned off at the completion of the event. Soap Gallery’s monthly show for October, “Shutter” featuring work by local photographers will be on display and for sale.
