    WEST MILFORD — Come to the library on Monday, July 9, for tales of romance and passion as conductor, teacher and lecturer Robert W. Butts tells the passionate stories of opera.

    Opera began as an intellectual experiment in Florence and almost immediately spread throughout Europe and America. The stories of human emotion and passion captured the imagination of writers, librettists and composers, often inspiring them to great creative heights.

    This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment of the Humanities.

    The library is located at 1490 Union Valley Road. Go to for more information.
