Dinner and a Diva

  Join your friends for an evening of fabulous music and fine dining!
Highlights From 
Bizet's The Pearl Fishers
at Petite Violette
Tuesday, March 21

Julia Metry, soprano
Jose Caballero, tenor
Benjamin Moore, baritone
   Grant Jones, piano

Few operas can match the sheer lyric beauty of Bizet’s youthful The Pearl Fishers. At its premiere, audiences were swept up in the ravishing score tinged with the allure of a mythical South Asian setting. The drama itself remains within the conventional standards of the day, with a love triangle complicated by the true friendship of the two men involved in it. Unlike Bizet's later more well-known work, Carmen, The Pearl Fishers lingers in beautiful melodies and atmospheres. If you are unfamiliar with this work, you will be certain to discover a new favorite!

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.
