dinner and a diva: La boheme
Our November Dinner and a Diva series is SOLD OUT. For those of you already joining us, you will hear highlights from one of the most popular operas ever written--Giacomo Puccini’s masterpiece La bohème. First performed on February 1, 1896 at Teatro Regio, Turin, it was conducted by a young Aturo Toscanini. Fifty years later, Toscanini conducted a radio performance of La bohème with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. The 1946 performance was eventually released on vinyl record and compact disc, making it the only recording of a Puccini opera by its original conductor.
La bohème’s music and storyline never fail to pull at your heartstrings. Set in a snowy Paris, it's the story of love in its greatest form, as six young, penniless artists who are full of idealism come face-to-face with the harsh realities of life. Some may remember that the Broadway musical Rent is loosely based on La bohème’s story line. And music from this timeless classic was used in the 1987 American romantic comedy film, Moonstruck.
We look forward to seeing you for a great fixed-price evening meal and highlights from La bohème sung by Rachel Eve Holmes, soprano; Julia Metry, soprano; Timothy Tolar, tenor; Jadrian Tarver, baritone; and Ivan Segovia, bass-baritone; and accompanied by the Company’s music director and pianist, Catherine Giel. It promises to be a great evening!
The dinner includes hors d’ oeuvres, salad, choice of two entrees, dessert, coffee/tea, and two glasses of wine, for only $60 per person (tax included; gratuity separate). The performers from theCapitol City Opera Company sing between each course. The evening begins at 6:15 p.m. with a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres reception; dinner and performance start promptly at 7 p.m. Reservations are required at 404-634-6268.
