SPRING INTO OPERA!
Saturday, May 3, 2014
7 to 9:30 pm
Join us for a gala evening of entertainment, a silent auction and great nibbles as we raise money for the rehearsal space for this year’s Halifax Summer Opera Festival Association!
“Spring into Opera” will be held at a lovely private home in Halifax. Tickets are $35.00 per person, which will include your membership in the Association. Picture yourself sipping wine and nibbling on delectable morsels, all the while surrounded by glorious operatic music featuring young, fresh voices accompanied by Lynette Wahlstrom on the baby grand. A silent auction will complete the evening which starts at 7:00 pm.
As a music lover you are probably aware of the Halifax Summer Opera Festival which is moving from success to success. We are gearing up for our 10th summer season, which will feature Giulio Cesare with Baroque orchestra as well as productions of Rusalka and Sondheim’s Into the Woods. However, there has been a small complication. The Dalhousie Arts Centre, our rehearsal home for the last nine years, is undergoing renovations this summer and most rehearsal places there will not be available.Our alternate rehearsal venue, while lovely, is much more expensive than the DAC, and we really appreciate your support as we raise money to cover these new costs.
Regular tickets to this event are $35, but if you’d like to help more, and wish to be listed in our programme as a supporter, we invite you to send us $100 which will also include your membership in the Association.
You can reserve tickets by calling Gisela O’Brien at 422-9859 or you can purchase them in advance with credit card or PayPal at http://springintoopera.brownpapertickets.com
