7:30 – 9:30 pm – Russ Hatter’s Murder & Mayhem Walking Tour, at Capital City Museum, 325 Ann St, Frankfort

While it may be commonly known as the Singing Bridge today, Frankfort residents and capital visitors in 1894 may have referred to the bridge crossing the Kentucky River to St. Clair as the hanging bridge.

Adults brave enough to learn of the city’s unsanitized and sordid past such as this tale can be both entertained and educated starting at 7:30 p.m. every Thursday in October for the Capital City Museum’s Murder and Mayhem Tour.

Well-known Frankfort historian, actor and radio personality Russ Hatter dons a late 1800s police costume and takes groups of as many as 40 adults on walking tours through downtown Frankfort.

Taking attendees to nearly two dozen locations stained by a dark past of mob rule, shootouts and murder from the late 1800s into the early 1900s, Hatter reveals the history not told in school textbooks of the capital city’s violent and unruly past.

The Murder and Mayhem tours are every Thursday in October beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Capital City Museum located at 325 Ann St.

Tours are for adults 18 and over given the graphic, gruesome and terrifying details. Tickets are $10, and reservations are required.

For more information call 502-696- 0607 or email russh1214@gmail.com.

12:00 noon – 5:00 pm – Met Opera presents: Tristan und Isolde, at The Grand Theatre, 308 St. Clair Street

Tristan und Isolde opens the Met season in a new production by Mariusz Treliński (the director responsible for the 2014–15 season’s double bill of Iolanta and Bluebeard’s Castle), and will be well served by a cast of outstanding Wagnerians: Nina Stemme as Isolde, Stuart Skelton as Tristan, Ekaterina Gubanova as Brangäne, and René Pape as King Marke, with Sir Simon Rattle conducting, in one of his rare appearances at the Met.

The three acts of the opera are originally set, respectively, aboard ship on the Irish Sea, in Cornwall (southwestern Britain), and in Brittany (northwestern France). The many versions of this story all pay homage to the Celtic ambience and probable origin of the tale. Wagner’s preservation of this context emphasizes several key themes associated with ancient Celtic culture: mysticism, knowledge of the magic arts, an evolved warrior code, and a distinctly non-Christian vision of the possibilities of the afterlife.

Tickets: $23 Adult / $18 Student / 12 PM (approximately 315 minutes)
