Capitol City Opera 
Presents Highlights From 
Lucia di Lammermoor
at Petite Violette
Tuesday, Oct. 17

This month's Dinner and a Diva on Tuesday evening, Oct. 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  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 cast 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. 

Plan now to join us on on Tuesday evening, Oct. 17 at Petite Violette. The evening promises to be a great one! Call Petite Violette and make your reservations soon.
