Dinner and a Diva--Bizet's Pearl Fishers

Dinner and a Diva--Bizet's Pearl Fishers

Our next Dinner and a Diva event, a three-course meal paired with wine and a performance, takes place Tuesday, March 21, and features highlights from Bizet's The Pearl FishersFew 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! Performers from Capitol City Opera Company include: Julia Metry, soprano; Jose Caballero, tenor; Benjamin Moore, baritone; and Grant Jones, piano. Hors d'oeuvres and cash bar served at 6:30 p.m.; program starts at 7 p.m. Reservations are required at 404-634-6268.
