Dinner and a Diva

  Join your friends for an evening of fabulous music and fine dining!

April 19, 21 and 28
Highlights from 'Carmen'

Join us for dinner at any one of our three supporting restaurants this month to hear highlights from French composer Georges 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. 

First performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, on March 3, 1875,  its initial run was only 36 performances. Before this run was completed, Bizet died suddenly, knowing nothing of his opera's later celebrity. 

In April 2011, a National Public Radio article said, "Carmen may have a bigger selection of hummable tunes than any other single opera. People who say they've never listened to a note of opera in their lives have probably heard something from Carmen, even if it was only in an elevator. The opera's string of hits includes the rousing toreador march that dominates the opera's introduction, the title character's sultry entrance scene and "Habanera," the playfully spooky "Urchin's Chorus" and the seductive "Seguedille" — all of which are heard before the end of act one!" 

So plan to settle in for an evening of wonderful food and great music on April 19, 21, or 28 to hear Capitol City Opera cast members Katie Oates Small, mezzo; Megan Mashburn, soprano; Marisa Martin, mezzo; Brett Pardue, tenor; and
Stephen McCool, baritone; bring you the best of Carmen. They will be accompanied by pianist Grant Jones.
