Second Dinner and a Diva: La boheme date added on Nov. 28

Second Dinner and a Diva: La boheme date added on Nov. 28

Now that the November 21st program is SOLD OUT, a second date has been added. So make your plans now to join us on Tuesday, November 28th, to 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!

Dinner and a Diva: Lucia di Lammermoor on October 17

Our next Dinner and a Diva, on Tuesday, October 17, will bring you highlights from Donizetti's darkly beautiful work Lucia di Lammermoor. The program will include the well-known sextet "Chi mi frena in tal momento," as well as other haunting and beautiful compositions which make this opera a jewel in the Italian opera repertoire. 

Glass harpist Brien Engel will be a special addition to the program. Check him out at www.glassharp.org.  His Dinner and a Diva participation is sponsored by the members of the Opera Y'all meetup group. 

In addition to Engel, the program features one of our largest casts for the year. It includes Jennifer Alynn-Perri as Lucia; Gus Godbee as Enrico; Yilam Sartorio as Edgardo; Amanda Perera as Alicia; Pedro Carreras as Normanno; and Ivan Segovia as Raimondo. The Company’s music director, Catherine Giel, will be the accompanist. 

Written in 1835 and set in Scotland, this opera focuses on an emotionally fragile Lucia who is caught in a feud between her family and an opposing family. Forced to abandon her true love to marry someone chosen for her, she goes mad (one of opera's most famous ‘mad scenes’) and takes violent revenge on her new husband. 

The dinner event includes premium hors d’ oeuvres, fresh salad, choice of two gourmet entrees, decadent dessert, coffee/tea, and two glasses of fine wine, for only $60 per person (tax included; gratuity separate). The performers from the Capitol 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. Please call 404 634-6268.
