The Empress and the Nightingale at the Carole and Marcus Weinstein Jewish Community Center 

Sunday, Nov. 2

Does music have the power to fight off death? In the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale “The Nightingale” it does. First published in 1843, the story tells the tale of a nightingale whose song was so beautiful that even Death himself was moved by it. The Virginia Opera presents “The Empress and the Nightingale” at the Carole and Marcus Weinstein Jewish Community Center on Sunday, Nov. 2. Celebrating its 40th season, the company’s family-friendly production features original music by a trio of performers in this adaptation of the literary classic. With its themes of man’s futility at controlling nature and the healing power of music, it’s a story that never goes out of style. The performance begins at 3 p.m. $5-$30. weinsteinjcc.org.
