Opera Cabaret VIII
Duluth Festival Opera continues its long tradition of popular fundraisers with another festive evening of beautiful singing, classic dining, live auction and reverie. This year’s Cabaret will be a ‘Stylish-Irish’ theme – romantic, historic and green! Opera Cabaret VIII will highlight a salute to the “Great American Opera Singers of the Past”, as we honor the contributions of American operatic superstars, including Beverly Sills, Marilyn Horne, Richard Tucker, Robert Merrill and others. And, our talented Cabaret Singers will pay tribute to the musical legacy of Ireland with a medley of your favorite songs from the Emerald Isle.
Our evening of entertainment will also include an Opera Trivia Quiz with prizes and an opportunity for spectacular ‘experiences’ from our live auction, including a week-long romantic vacation getaway to Maui! You won’t want to miss this great night of fun to help sustain the DFO’s outstanding programs.
Comprising our superb group of Cabaret singers will be last year’s leading soprano from Pocahontas, lyric soprano Linh Kauffman; UMD graduate and Met Opera baritone, Nathan Herfindahl; beautiful mezzo-soprano, Sidney Walker; and new tenor sensation and rising Twin Cities artist, Timothy James. They will raise the rafters with famous selections from Tosca, La traviata, Barber of Seville, Lakme, Rigoletto, The Pearl Fishers, Giulio Cesare and more.
Come to the Cabaret to support the Duluth Festival Opera by attending this evening of beautiful music with fine food and live auction.
