Saturday October 29, 2013. 7:30-10PM

The Vineyard Touring Opera Company returns to the Club with Verdi’s “Un Ballo In Maschera”.

“Un Ballo In Maschera” is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi with text by Antonia Somma, which had its premiere in Rome in 1859. The story has its origin in the assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden in 1792.

The very short synopsis: Happy-go-lucky king falls in love with the wife of his best friend and most trusted advisor. Love’s passion is checked by duty while jealousy leads to conspiracy, betrayal, and murder at a masked ball.

Club members pay $5.

Happy Birthday Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club

A group of women met in October 1904 for study and called themselves, “The History Class”. The meetings were held in the home of Miss Elizabeth McLaughlin on the corner of Fourth Street and Wilshire Boulevard. This class continued for ten weeks, and it was then decided to have a permanent organization and call it “Santa Monica Lecture Class.” Mrs. D.G. Stephens organized it and was made President; Miss McLaughlin, Secretary.

On December 11, 1905, the Woman’s Club of Santa Monica was born with eighty-eight members and the following officers elected: President – Mrs. Allen M. Jamieson; First Vice-President – Mrs. John Hunt; Second Vice-President – Mrs. George Hutton; Secretary – Miss Elizabeth McLaughlin; Treasurer – Mrs. Jessica R. Clark (Cornett). At this meeting, Mrs. Stephens presented a gavel to the New President. This gavel has been passed down through the years and is always used at each installation the first Monday in June.
