Dinner and a Diva

  Join your friends for an evening of fabulous music and fine dining!
Highlights From 
at Petite Violette
Tuesday, June 20 & 27

Join us on either Tuesday evening June 20 or June 27 for this ever-popular monthly program featuring highlights of opera between wonderful courses of famous food and hospitality. 

This month's Dinner and a Diva will bring you highlights from Bizet's popular opera, Carmen – the story of a naive soldier who falls for the charms of a fiery gypsy and then loses her to a glamorous toreador.  Appetizers/Tapas and cash bar at 6:30 p.m. The program begins in the dining room at 7 p.m.

Carmen was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on March 3, 1875. It was not, at first, considered to be a particularly successful opera since its initial run was only 36 performances. Before this run was concluded, Bizet died suddenly, thus having no idea how well known his opera would become in future years.

About Dinner and a Diva
Capitol City Opera's Dinner and a Diva program is a great way to learn about opera with perfect portions of opera interspersed with wonderful courses of food at one of our three participating restaurant partners. Programs at Petite Violette are scheduled for the third Tuesday of each month unless that week conflicts with a major holiday.
