Ancram Opera House Kicks Off Its First Season

The Ancram Opera House, now owned by former Hudsonians (and Gossips' neighbors) Paul Ricciardi and Jeff Mousseau, is starting its first season this Saturday, June 25, with an intriguing show for all ages called Les Moutons (The Sheep), a delightful look at how sheep spend their time.

Created by the Toronto-based dance-theater group CORPUS, Les Moutons merges reality and fantasy through a captivating and wordless live installation that re-creates a bucolic country scene. Audiences are invited to travel to a strange and often hilarious universe: a carefully studied, surrealistic overview of sheep behavior. The story features Julie, Marie-Louise, Bernadette, and César--three healthy ewes and a young ram. Routine activities, including shearing, feeding, milking, and many more are depicted in a magical performance that twists reality in surprising ways.
Shows are at 2 and 5 p.m., with a party between shows with Cowboy Jim & the Hayrollers. There will be refreshments and a real lamb for petting. Kids are admitted free (the show is recommended for children 3 and up); for everyone else, it's $15. Click here to purchase tickets. The Ancram Opera House is located at 1330 County Route 7 in Ancram.
