The evening opens at 6:30 p.m. with light libations and hors-d’oeuvres along with a silent auction. The remainder of the evening will feature a program of operatic performances from the Company’s most popular staged productions as well as blockbuster opera scenes and ensembles - - - all performed by members of Capitol City’s stable of local singers.
It will conclude with coffee and desert at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $75 per person. Seating for the evening is limited to 100 people on a first come – first served basis.
