Marta Becket's legendary Amargosa Opera House (a short drive from Pahrump, NV) will present their 52nd Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, February 15th, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. with optional 5:00 p.m. buffet dinner at Amargosa Café.
This variety evening will include, "Gossip" an homage to ballerina Marta Becket and her long time partner Tom "Wilget" Willet, by Jenni Williams and Jason Neuman; then D. Pel will perform original songs inspired by Marta and experiences with people and places in Death Valley Junction.
American Southwest "Dust Devil" video-short, produced and directed by Australian filmmaker Poppy Walker, will please the eyes, followed by "Ballet" choreographed by Anastasia Weiss and performed by Michelle Meyer.
As if that wasn't enough, the evening's feature, not to be missed, is old-time Jazz, Rag-Time, Blues, and Novelty songs by JANET KLEIN & HER PARLOR BOYS.
According to her biography by Stewart Mason, "With her sleek bob haircut, vintage dresses, strikingly beautiful looks, and artfully customized ukulele, Janet Klein... might seem at first to be recreating the subtly naughty look of a fin-de-siècle French postcard, but then she opens her mouth to sing (and we find) a musical archeologist in a Gibson-girl's body..."
Indeed she is, "an enchanting and effervescent chanteuse performing obscure, naughty and lovely tunes from 1910 to 1930's in spirited renditions of Tin Pan Alley, early hot jazz, vaudeville, ragtime and other lovable, rare and rustic tunes." LISTEN: https://www.janetklein.com
